You have a leak on a fuel line or the fuel pump is bad. VRO? change it to electric and never look back. Have converted several to electric this year and customers brag about how much easier the motor starts and how much better they run. I found it much better to mount the electric pump close to the fuel tank.

Premixing isn't the whole issue here. If the fuEl side of your vro starts getting weak it will still cause hard starts. By going to a 12 volt electric pump you save money because the electric pump is much less expensive, and it gives you better pressure to the motor, solving your hard atart problem as well. A new vro is 500+ before labor.

Starts easy just some problem at idle
We ran 12 gal through it today and honestly it did pretty well died 1 time at idle the other many times we started it just fine, after a long hard run back to the ramp it idled perfect waiting to load it up, it ran better today that it has in the last 3 trips, instant starting.

thanks again to all

run a couple of cans of seafoam through it with 5 gals of mix, this may help with idle and will for sure help clean it out.

I agree with the electric pump too, you know why. lol.
