My honda 40 gets 12mpg and costs me 2 quarts of oil a year instead of 2 quarts every 4 tanks of gas. Its quiet cranks and runs great and a HUGE plus is that its tiller control and has a counterbalance shaft so I can keep a steady course with one finger. My old 25 johnson required a firm grip of the handle and the other hand on the side of the boat to keep it in the road, and got 4 mpg.
So nearly double the power 2x+ better gas mileage and better engineered for easier handling 4 stroke all the way.
By the way I paid nearly $1000 extra for a 4 stroke of equal power and dont regret it one bit. The honda had a 3 year warranty the others except for yamaha had 1 year.
