I have a brand new Ranger 1880 Angler with a 200 G2 on it. The fuel guage doesn't work, it's still at the dealers shop and they can't really nail down the issue. I feel the dealer is good but the response from Evinrude is 0. They've been trying to contact Evinrude with mutltiple calls and emails with 0 response from them. I'm mad at Evinrude already and haven't even got my boat home yet. The first email went out 5 1/2 days ago, with calls since then. Does anyone have any ideas on how either I or the dealer could actualy talk to someone at Evinrude that cares? Thank you !

Please be aware that in accordance with the Wisconsin Governor's decree that Evinrude has been basically shut down for the COVID19 duration and is scheduled to reopen soon. Currently there is only a skeleton crew in the offices.
