Thanks for your reply. I've noted your recommendation about the fuel pump and will look into the condition of the current one and possibly getting a rebuilt.

Re: the risk. That's good to hear. It's hard, w/out experience, to have a good feel for risk. There are certainly alarming posts... just read a few about refueling... making me wonder if I should get a remote control to start the engine from a good distgance after a fill-up.

I am thinking of getting the xilink (sp?) vapor sensor in the West Marine catalog. Maybe the one that can use 2 sensors -- one for under the engine? ... and one for under/near the fuel tank area? That would help w/ safety and also be a good excuse to get another gadget.
