Ran out of gas now won't start
I was cruising around as a second day owner of a 2005 sea ray with 5.0 mph mercruiser I/O and ran out of gas lucking drifted into the boat launch. The mechanical gauge stated I had 1/4 tank but later found out digital gauge registered empty on gas. I refilled tank with gas and now engine will not start. Do I need to replace fuel filter and fill it with gas prior to trying to restart and if this doesn't work what can a do next to troubleshoot?
