    Did some more troubleshooting today before I went to town for parts.

    Unhooked the pressure side line from the fuel pump and jumpered 12v straight to it. It fired gas. So, pump appears good.

    Yeah supposedly ethanol blended fuel loses octane over time. I don't think it's enough to cause any problems for moderate use (a tank ever few weeks), but still something to be aware of.

    That raises a good question - what grade fuel are you using? I always put in at least 91 octane in my old Moomba. In fact I've done that with all the boats I've owned so far.
