Re: 9.8HP Tohatsu 2-stroke odd behaviour

I'm going to place a nickle bet on the mixture as well.

While it's admittedly a bit of witchcraft and not the same as pulling things apart, I do use this annually. I think it does a reasonably good job of keeping things clean, albeit cheating. You spray the entire can down the air intake, while running. It nearly chokes the motor to a stop, so you let up and then go at it again. Big smoke maker, makes you feel like you are doing something.

I have used this for over 30 years in anything that burns gas, and have not had any fuel related problems, except one time when I forgot to drain the carb on an outboard put away for the winter, my fault. I change the gas, treated with it, once a year in my generator, which runs fine.
