To start off, I have a 2005 merc optimax 225. Recently I had a miss while it was idling. So I replaced the fuel filter and the 2 inline fuel filters. Since doing that when you try to jump on plane or stick your foot in it it starts the warning buzzer. It's not affecting acceleration it doesn't seem but is awfully annoying.
What gives??
By the way, when I took out the red cap fuel filter and looked down into the reservoir, it looked like crushed butterscotch at the bottom. I took a shop vac and sucked it clean and filled with sea foam but still have a slight miss while idling.
I have always used marine stabil but recently ran out and used that biobor stuff I got from a bass champs event. Anyone else had these issues? I realize it's from the ethanol but thought those additives would alleviate these problems.
Anyway any advice on the buzzer would help. Thanks

Censer most likely bad for the low oil alarm. Not sure on the other issue.
