It is very important to keep track of hours and fuel con-
sumption to obtain an average gallon per hour consump-
tion figure. Refer to the fuel log located at the back of
this manual. This will prevent any problems with run-
ning out of fuel on the water.
Avoid serious injury or death from fire or ex-
plosion resulting from leaking fuel. Inspect sys-
tems for leaks at least once a year.
Dealers are equipped with some general figures on con-
sumption which can be used as a guide until specific
ing conditions, speed, weight and other factors common
to your situation, fuel consumption will vary between your
boat and consumption figures developed by Four
To help guard against damage, avoid the stor-
age or handling of gear near the fuel lines, fit-

To conform to FederalAir Quality Standards, the
petroleum industry reduced the amount of tetra-
ethyl lead in gasoline. Alcohol is being blended
with gasoline to help restore the octane rating
lost when the lead was removed. While blend-
ing alcohol with gasoline increases the octane
level of the fuel, it can also create certain safety
and performance related problems for boaters.
Fuel filters are installed on each engine. Filters should
be cleaned or changed frequently to assure an adequate
supply of fuel to the engine. Refer to the engine manual
foradditionalinformation. The engine manual is included
in the owner’s information packet.
Canister-type filters should be changed annu-
A. Problems With Alcohol In Gasoline
Below is a list of problems which may be experienced
when using blended gasoline.

fuel tanks, fuel filters, fuel pumps and rubber gas-
kets. This deterioration will lead to fuel system leak-
DO NOT let the odor of gasoline go unchecked.
If the odor of gasoline is noted, DO NOTSTART
