Re: New Honda 2.3 outboard not running
This engine is only about a month old. Oldest gas would be 2 weeks and all I run is super 93 octane. I could understand if I had fuel that was a month or more old - but that's not the case. If Honda wants to charge me on this, I'll be moving to another brand plain and simple.
If you did not run the carb dry or drain it after the first two trips, that is sufficient to block the jets on these little carbs.
Edit : just saw your last post. Cool. But I still recommend running dry at least, or draining better still.
