Re: Tohatsu troubles

One more point (been resisting do to not wanting to jinx myself) is that I don't follow any recommendations that I probably should. I don't use a stabilizer, I don't shut off the fuel valve and run it till it dies, I don't run ethanol free gas...hell I don't even winterize it. One thing I do though is run the boat year round, which I think solves a lot of problems. At least a couple times a month throughout winter. If I lived in the cold country I would definately be more pro-active with preventive maintenance. Anyhow...it starts on first pull every time. I love my Nissan / Tohatsu outboard. Geez...I hope I didn't jinx myself.
