    Boat Fuel Discussion - What Do You Use and Why?

    Hi all...I’m with zmk1962.ive seen first hand the damage e10 fuel does.i use quad bikes for hunting pigs,and they go into storage when not in use,much like boats.ive had the carbies all corroded up from e10 fuel. i will never put e10 in anything i own.EVER ! I use the highest octane fuel avaliabe on my etec.apparently octane decreases with age.my boat has a 200 liter tank,i usually use no more than 30 liters per trip,and get out atleast twice a month,so i highly doubt my fuel in my tank has the same octane as what i buy.although what has been said here that etecs should be run on low octane fuel,i havnt read the manual.but my engine runs fine and never missed a beat.

    Yamaha 40HP 2 stroke loses powers down under full throttle

    Hi all...sounds like fuel.to be sure,next time it happens take a spark pluug out and see if its wet with fuel,or dry.if the plug is dry,its fuel.if its wet its spark. Or,you could earth the plug out on the motor with the spark plug cap on,crank the engine over and see if you have spark.
