Hi I'm Wayne

this indicates a weak pump

Even if it runs fine on level ground and uphill? how full should fuel filter be when running it shows about a third full, is there a low oil sensor on this motor that could be bad possibly
Expert:  Wayne replied 1 year ago.
Hi Thank you for that
the fuel filter should be 1/2 to 3/4, full at all times,
if you are seeing only a 1/3 , I suggest you replace the pump
or the pick up tube in the tank may have a crack in it
not likely, I would start with fuel pump
