Re: Yanmar 2gm2f no start after fueling

Good idea to have spare filters on the boat. I change mine every year. Since this happened while you were fueling there are 2 possibilities:
1. You just ran out of fuel
2. Your fuel got contaminated. Fuel gets old on sailboats since you normally use so little, moisture/bacteria settles at the bottom of the tank. It gets stirred up when you are fueling or you motor in rougher waters. You might want to siphon some fuel from the lowest point in the tank and see what it looks like, if it is dirty that is your problem.
