This engine is provided with a starter motor for starting an engine main body, a control unit for controlling the actions of the engine main body, a battery for supplying power to the starter motor and the control unit, an auxiliary power source for applying voltage to the control unit through use of the power supplied from the battery, and a switching circuit for blocking the application of voltage from the auxiliary power source to the control unit. The control unit improves ease of startup in low temperatures by controlling the blocking of the switching circuit on the basis of voltage decrease predictive information for predicting voltage decreases in the control unit.
