had to replace the fuel line in my boat because of ethanol,10ft of line going to a built in tank in an unsinkable boston whaler copy, not an easy job. the fuel line path is foam filled and had to make a drill bit out of a plumbing snake to clear a new path.my problem started 15 miles from the boat ramp in a very remote back country area and could only idle back, 5hrs idling every time I tried to increase speed the motor would "starve" and stall. I cut open several sections of the fuel line to find the inner lining to be melted off the outer walls only allowing gas to trickle through Also have seen a decrees in my mpg in pickup due to ethanol
