Hello. My name is Tan.

This is a failing VRO pump it can't pump enough fuel to keep engine running.

You have a few options.

1) replace the pump. http://www.marineengine.com/newparts/part_details.php?pnum=OMC5007423

2) rebuild the fuel pump side of the pump. VRO kit. http://www.maxrules.com/fixomcvro.html

3) Use conventional pump and mix your own oil and gas. http://www.offshoremarineparts.com/62-13-024.html#product_tabs_description_tabbed

Post back with questions.

Thank you......Tan
