Re: Tohatsu help

When you have finished running the engine, do you always run the carb dry of fuel? If not, you are constantly gumming up the jets, and it's a cumulative effect.

Another good habit is Stabil or similar in the fuel.

A third good habit is NEVER to use fuel that is more than one month old. Dispose of it in your car's gas tank.

Following these 3 habits, or not, can make all the difference, between a nightmare engine and a dependable one.
