    2 jet skis with the same problem

    I have a 1996 Polaris SLT 780 and a 1992 SeaDoo SP. Both of them ran well last year. I did rebuild the carb in the SeaDoo last year. This past winter, I used Stabill for the first time. Though I am getting the skis out later this year than ever, both have the same problem. Neither of the skis will get on a plane. Both of them seem to bog down, stutter, surge as if they are going to go and then bog back down. When I tested the Polaris this year, I readily assumed the issue would be the spark plugs which I replaced them immediately with no success. I checked the water separator, and it didn't appear to have any water in it. I cannot figure out what could be the issue with one having a newly rebuilt carb and the other having new spark plugs. Has anyone had issues using Stabill? Thanks for your help.

    Did you store them with ethanol gas in them?

    Yes, but with fuel stabilizer in both of them.

    There aren't many fuel stabilizers out there that really do anything with ethanol gas. Try draining out the old fuel and refilling with fresh.
