All I can definitively say is that our 4 stroke 15hp Johnson is so miserly on fuel that we nearly run out it of fuel. We go for such long periods between fill ups that we forget we actually need fuel. It is unbelievable how long it runs on 2.5 gallons of gas. Sorry though, we've never even tried to estimate consumption.
Many have also commented on how quiet it is, as well. We can talk in a normal voice when running at 2/3 throttle. So yes, 4 stroke, if you can handle the extra weight, is the way to go.
