My 85 Force was running well until Ethanol was introduced a few years back. It then began cutting out at speed, running on one or two cylinders and generally quit on me. I haven't used it since two summers ago when I got discouraged with the whole deal. I would like to get it running again, since we really miss the boat and wonder if any of you have experienced the same results. I have been told it most likely is a carburetor problem but I would appreciate your input.

Thanks,

Wickaboag
