Hi guys, I just purchased a 2006 115hp Evenrude etec saltwater edition with 76hours on it, looks brand new and haven't been used in the last 9 years, it was winterised before it went into hibernation according to the owner and was flushed after each use. I am not familiar with these motors as I only ever owned 2-stroke Yamaha's and Mercury.
Motor runs great apart from a slight mis - no matter what RPM, it is almost like it could it be a spark plug not firing all the time or maybe perhaps a dirty injector? I'm used to dealing with carbs so this is new to me.
Can I run quicksilver's version of fuel system cleaner through this motor?
Does this motor only run on Evenrude 2stroke for this engine or can I use normal outboard 2-stroke?
Any help will be appreciated.
We have to know exactly what motor you have by the model number. The 115 Evinrude E-TEC first was introduced as a 2007 model year.
Follow the operators guide for fuel, oil, and maintenance items:

The factory recommends that a properly trained technician service your Johnson or Evinrude outboard motor. Should you elect to perform repairs yourself, use caution, common sense, and observe safety procedures in the vicinity of flammable liquids, around moving parts, near high-temperature components, and working with electrical or ignition systems.
The information offered here is only general in nature and should not be construed as complete factory approved procedures, techniques, or specifications. Always use the proper service manual for your motor, up-to-date service literature, the correct tools, and have an understanding of how to proceed with troubleshooting and repair methods. If you are unsure or uncomfortable with a procedure, a situation, or a technique, enlist the services of a factory trained technician.
Thank you for all the replies, it seems that the motor had it's 300hrs service 4 months ago, new plugs and everything. Quite a large bill the previous owner had to pay, they sent me the invoice to see what all has been replaced. I am still waiting for the last engine report from the mech. There is no fuel / water seperation filter, i'm assuming it is because there is no built in tank and only 2 portable plastic tanks.
When I ran the motor there was no miss, it ran perfectly, fresh fuel in the tanks, it was only the second day early morning that I noticed the miss.
