The main difference between the three models, as has been discussed on several forums previously, including this one... are the carburetor jets or carburetors.
I'd point out that having an external fuel tank makes the engine far safer to use, since you can have a larger fuel tank and the chances of running out of fuel are much lower. Also, it is generally easier to re-fill a fuel tank sitting in the cockpit than the integral tank on the engine itself, since the engine will often be hanging off the transom or in an outboard well.

The fuel line is $68.99.
Overall the cost of all of these parts is $513.97
However, I could live with the 20" leg, and the integral tank, which brings the price down to only $130...
The real question is, what makes the 6hp a 6hp when all the specs are the same as the 4 and the 5?

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
