Default any thoughts on a 1999 merc 250EFI

blew up the 2.4, and have a line on a 1999 3.0 250EFI, rebuilt with 50 hours, and warranty until February. The price is right, and it is somewhat local, and still on the boat so I can test it. Guy is selling the boat(its on a 21 flats boat), so he is putting the stock power back on to sell, and selling me the motor. I think it'll look good here

Never heard anything bad about them. Comp check it and test run it.
Bad fuel economy but a good solid motor .Thats what my mechanic says.

Bad fuel economy compared to what, my 2.4 used a crapload of fuel.
