We have a mariner 40 efi outboard 2007 we drained it of fuel

Customer Question

We have a mariner 40 efi outboard 2007 we drained it of fuel by running the engine dry like the old way with carbs not realising that you can't do that with these engines . There is a strong smell of petrol and a lack of power from the engine it seems it has gone into saftey mode.
Regards bob
Ps forgot to say that we have run the engine for about 2 hours before we noticed the problem
