I have a 2001 outback and was wondering what the gas tank capacity is. I think it is a 26 or 27 gallon tank. If so, I think I have a problem. Several times, I have been running at cruising speed, skiing, etc. and the boat will stop and idle with the throttle still in the half to 3/4 throttle position. Each time this has happened, I put the boat in neutral and go gas up. The problem is it never holds more than 17 gallons. It usually holds about 9-14 gallons. I thought I might be leaning into the kill switch, but I know I'm not. Also, I have to fill my tank extremely slow( as slow as the gas pump will pump). I asked a mechanic at the dealership I bought the boat from about it, and he didn't think it was a problem. I would like the use the whole tank of gas and not have to fill up every couple of hours. If anybody can give me some ideas on how to fix the problem I would appreciate it.
