2 week old fuel varnishes? That's a bit extreme no? Out of all the outboards I have ever owned, I have never been required to run them dry, nor does it say that in the manual. It does state in the manual that if you plan to "store" the motor for an "extended period of time" it should be treated. I don't think 2 weeks is "storing" nor "extended".

Go sailing now my brother,
It's later than you think.
