Yes, though this one has a normal V4 four stroke engine. The three cylinder two stroke engine that needed oil in the gas sounded like a Singer sewing machine going down the road, smoked out the tailpipe, and had a flat rate for a complete engine overhaul of 8 hours. The transaxle has a coasting clutch - when you let off the gas, it de-couples the engine from the tranny letting you coast. This feature could be locked out for driving down mountains, etc. Our Sonnett III had the V4 with the cool tranny.
