Hey everyone! Haven't posted in a while...thought I might ask a question of what ya'll do...
2010 Mercury 9.9 hp 4 stroke.
With all the gasoline quality woes these days, I have been in the habit of draining the carburetor after every fishing trip. Does anyone else do this? Is is recommended?
I've already had to replace my accelerator pump(plunger) due to gasoline ethanol eating away at it.
OTHER THAN Stabil, will draining it help to prevent this? Although it's only a $22 part...

I just add fresh gas when needed and use a little treatment occasionally and have never had a problem with gas in 20 years of boating.
