Re: 4-stroke 6 hp Tohatsu Outboard Issues

Bad gas is responsible for most operating problems. Try putting carberator cleaner in the tank and running it through. But first; does your motor have a window so you can see the oil level in the engine? I believe it should. Is the level at 1/2 way up that window? Do you have enough oil? If so, it's undoubtably bad fuel.

Keep a stabilizer in your fuel so you avoid this problem in the future.
