Boat motors suckkkkk!

Post by flhuntfish » Wed Aug 04, 2010 3:48 pm

So my boat motor pretty muched stopped working a few weeks ago. Been running it daily for about 10 days or so then it didnt run for two days and now i cant keep it running. I can get it to kick over now and rev at full throttle but when you try and turn it down and idle it, it just shuts down. The spark plugs are brand new and the carberator is as clean as a whistle. Any input would be appreciated :toast

I've been married so damn long I forgot what a girlfriend is like. Almost every engine I own has been damaged by ethanol. Since using the Sta bil I have had no other problems. I use it in everything now.
Even put it in my coffee :sailor

I found a place up in Vernon (south of Bonifay) that sells premium unleaded WITHOUT ethanol for the same price as the crappy premium, and only 20 cents more than regular unleaded with that ethanol crap in it. My truck gets almost 6 mpg more running pure gasoline over the crap they're selling now for gas all around O-town.

The place there on the Kissimmee River where SR70 crosses over has a sign that says it has "boat gas" with no ethanol.
