Boat gasser treatment

I took my boat out last weekend for the first time after winteristing and it doesn't seem to have the same get up and go. Before parking it i filled the tank and added the same stablizer as always. Don't get me wrong it still goes 50+ on the water but from a stop something isn't right. I wanted to burn all the gas but thought it would be a good idea to go after breaking my nose Should I just run all the gas out or should I get an octain boost

That's what i would try first. Its fast and easy. My Handa V65 magna sat all winter, started out baley run, put some sea-foam and in the next 1/2 hr it slowly started to runn better. Gas probly is getting a little gummy in the jets. That's what i figured happened to me.

couldnt say for sure but probably.





PS the BG 44k is about three times the price of the sea foam, try the sea foam first if it doesnt fix it the 44K prob will.
