The rating is in Amps, not watts.

Not sure why the difference, might be more stator windings in the EF one.
I think you'll find that they'll both run fine whatever model (EF/EL) they're fitted to.

Cheaper most likely.
Fraud may have found that 110amp was an overkill to run the twin thermo's and other simultaneos acc's.

Well, EF's have 3 speed thermo fans and a coil pack.

Maybe they deemed that it needed a few extra amps to cover all the accessories at full load than an EL did.
