I had the same problem with my Tohatsu 8Hp. It was the ethanol clogging my jets. Had to clean the carb and used additive after that. If you can find any 100 octane racing fuel (ethanol free) run a tank of that, it will clean out the carb. Use additive after that, if your gas is going to sit for a week or more. Personally, I think your better of using it all the time.
