    2010 155 wake starts runs then sputters and dies

    2010 155 wake starts runs then sputters and dies. Always starts super easy, runs for like two minutes and then rough and dies. Any ideas of where to start trouble shooting? only 16 hours on the ski. could be bad gas?

    Run a double dose of Lucas fuel Injector cleaner thru it.
    6-7 oz in the tank.
    Sounds like you need to pump the old fuel out , change the plugs, new fuel in with Injector cleaner and ride her at wot for 15-20 min.
    Cleans out all the crap with a long wot run.
    No its not going to hurt it running wot.
    Its designed to be wide open all day if you don't mind paying for all the fuel.
    That way no crap gets built up inside causing you future issues.

    I do this to 1/2 the skis I get because they sit too much.

    This things don't like to just sit in the garage..

    Old gas out, new plugs in and I got the sea foam injector cleaner cause I kept seeing it recommended. Now I just need to get it in the water and see if it all works. Thanks guys!

    So, finally got out on the water. Runs great! I think the only thing I would do different is to start with just the new plugs(cause that was really cheap and really easy), and see I could've saved the gas. draining it and wasting it was a lot trouble.

    What qualifies as "bad gas" in a ski vs. my cars has always been quite different. Mix your fresh gas with your "bad gas" 4:1 in your car and no need to waste. (unless you're driving something hi performance) .
