I don't think adding lead to the gas will be necessary on your boat motor.

I have a feeling there is something going on with the carburetor that'[s causing this problem. Do make sure to check the fuel lines as they could be rotting on the inside and causing this problem. I ran into a similar situation with a garden tractor last year. It would run fine for about 15-20mins and then just die as if running out of gas. I finally (in desperation) pulled the fuel lines and found a small section where it had swelled and was squeezing too tight for the correct fuel flow.

Thank you for using Manage My Life!
