Named West Marine's inaugural Green Product of the Year, Mercury's MercMonitor ECO-Screen constantly checks engine rpm, boat speed, fuel consumption and engine trim to guide anglers to optimize trim and rpm settings. Mercury says the system can generate 10 to 20 percent improvement in fuel economy for the average user. ECO-Screen needs no calibration, and Mercury says it's user-friendly, with easy prompts that tell you exactly what you need to do. The screen turns green when fuel use is optimized and yellow when it's not. ECO-Screen works with all of Mercury's SmartCraft-compatible engines and requires a digital trim sender ($60-$85) for full functionality. ECO-Screen costs $426.
