Hello my name is ***** ***** am I speaking with?

How old is the fuel in the boat? When was the last time the engine ran normally as it should?

Are you still with me?

Customer: replied 12 days ago.
I am still here the boat ran good about 1 1/2 months ago. The fuel is probably 2 months old but I filled the tank up
with hi test gas last week and added gas shok.

I see you requested a call. The website does charge an additional 26 for the phone service upgrade. (This is on top of the 29 you paid for an online web chat). Did you want to set up a phone call or stay online?
