Re: New Honda 2.3 outboard not running
I wouldn't do anything to the engine until the dealer took a look at it. Trying to fix this yourself may void the warranty. Me? I'd dump the gas, put the proper octane rated fuel in the tank and crank her up. Also read the manual to see if there is anything said about ethanol laced gasoline.
No such thing as a free cat, and that goes for boats as well.
