Sounds like problem was filter and yes could have been cumalitive or a change in parameters on the engine thus drawing more juice ( old plugs/injector etc etc).
My ref to the fuel transducer may need a bit more explanation. It can work for some time with no problem but the slightest bit of muck will stop it dead. This the reason that it must be fitted after the filter. Muck can still arrive there from for instance changing filter or a break down in the fuel hose. This transducer is not just peculiar to Evinrude - some others use the same assembly. In fairness it seems to be a rare event but one that we were not happy with on boats that we supply.
From memory this is not a hard code and thus the code will "clear" when the problem is cleared ie. when adequate fuel flow/pressure is achieved. Turn ignition off ,prime system with bulb, turn ignition on and leave on for say 20 secs for fuel pump to prime and then start. Check engine will only show if problem remains. Code will remain on the system as a storred code and can later be cleared by Evinrude engineer with either PDA or computer.
