As an alternative to borrowing a fuel tank for a short time then returning it. Would getting the motor fuel fitting the attaching a fuel line to an electric pump to empty out the remaining fuel in the inboard tank work?

Does anyone have a Red Outboard fuel tank I can borrow to see if the problem is stale fuel? I will pay for ULP fuel.

I live in Marangaroo not far from the Kingsway Shops on Hepburn Avenue and Wanneroo Road.

Ray,
What I suggest you before you go to all the trouble of removing the tank as I don't know of any other way than pulling it out is. Get hold of a red fuel tank and fuel line with the same fitting as your motors so at least that will confirm that the fuel is the problem. I hope that helps you out?

My boat has not been used for about 3 years because of my companion arthritis.

I tried just on chance turning the motor over but got nothing. Consequently I believe the fuel stale and need to be removed. The boat has an inboard fuel tank with a refueling point on the starboard side. There is the standard twin port fuel connector which attaches to my Johnson (Suzuki) 140hp 4 stroke.

THe fuel tank be accessed if absolutely necessary but involves major disassembly of the rear of the boat and that costs money

Is there a connector that attaches to the fuel line that enables a pump to be attached the fuel to be pumped out?

Any other suggestions are welcome.
