    Bad fuel at loto!!

    Came down for the lake race arrived on Friday. drove about 25 miles brand new triple 1100's. Tanks are new and clean we decided to fuel up before heading to the lake race on Saturday stopped at Camden on the lake and got fuel the pump kept slamming off and on black smoke pouring out of the tail pipes about eight miles later. Loaded the boat up trailered home 7 hours thinking the worst just drained my fuel water separators into a glass bowl remember water is heavier than fuel.. 90% Water and full of sediment. 6 plugged carbs 2 bad head gaskets..nice...

    I would still be having a conversation with them.
    Never liked those loud obnoxious boats, until I bought one of my own.

    Doesn't anyone else here gas up there? Just surprised there aren't more folks saying they had a problem too.

    Not doubting, just a thought thrown out respectfully. Sorry you had issues, sounds like it farked your day up bigtime.

    That's the fuel? wow! I thought it was a new kind of margerita drink or something? I think with all of these additives that raise the price that "help" the earth are baloney, it makes all kinds of engines run bad. Back in the day I don't remember having to add additives, ethynol treatments, yadda, yadda. I remember pumping it into any fuel tank, sealing it up, and going on my way, my how time has changed.....
