Had the same problem with blowing fuel pump fuses on a 2003 150HP OPTI which was diagnosed as a failed fuel injector.

Cheers John

Useful post.

When I went out yesterday I deliberately took a box of spare fuses with me. I've got an Optimax 150 and reading the manual of course they suggest carrying spare fuses, but it had honestly never occurred to me before. Another item now added to the stuff carried onboard...

thanks,

Gerry
