My worry is that it's been left with an unknown quantity of fuel in the internal tank and don't know what state it's going to be in.

I think it's going to be to much to bin....

If its a 4 stoke it will be fine
2 stroke forget it it will only run well with good octane rating

My osprey was full when I picked it up, drained it and run it in my mates car no ptobem,, would never chance running ac2 stroke engine on it

Well I'm an etec so it's not looking good. Not sure about how much is in it though, i estimate 70 out of 150. I didn't refill it from my last trip out as I never got the chance.

I don't have anything to store it in to dispose of, and it would bring a tear to my eye throwing all that away. Is it not worth topping it all up with fresh?

My first weekend outing is on a lake, so a little safer than sea...

My plan is to try and start it then take it from there - if it starts I will top up the tank and if not then bin it all ...

It's been left since 10th Nov in an internal tank with breather open - but the boat is in a barn so hasn't been in the rain.

Fingers crossed.

Sorry about the thread hijack and random change in direction. Opps
