Brand new 90 etec keeps quiting

Bought a new 90 etec in May of this yr 2017, we ran it for about a month and a half and it quit on me just like it ran out of fuel. Took it to the dealer and after 2 weeks of being there and taking everything apart they said they found a bad clamp on the fuel line but the mechanic told me he even hooked it to a different tank and hand pumped the fuel in it and it still wouldn't start. When they finally got it going I ran it may 6 or 7 trips on the river and it did the exact same thing. This time they said that It was a kink in the fuel line, then after about 2 days they now want to bill me $1300 because they said I used bad fuel and they would not warranty any problems. Needless to say I will be looking at putting something different on the back of my boat next summer.

You may want to email your story to  brp.care@brp.com  with the engine serial number, dealer name, and your contact information.  They will look into it.
