Dear Evinrude E-TEC Registered Owner:
This notice is sent to you in accordance with the
requirements of the U.S Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and other
applicable laws and regulations.
This notice is sent to you because our records indicate that you are
the owner of an Evinrude E-TEC outboard affected by this recall. Your Evinrude E-TEC outboard requires an important service procedure.
What is the reason for this notice?
BRP US Inc. in the United States and Bombardier Recreational Products
Inc. in Canada (collectively “BRP”) are conducting a voluntary EPA
recall on certain Evinrude E-TEC 15�65 HP outboard.
What is the problem?
As defined in Title 40 of the Code of Federal Regulations, as a
manufacturer, BRP is required to correct engines that may be emitting
pollutants in excess of Federal emission standards. An incorrect fuel
hose type contained in the fuel hose and primer bulb assembly may have
been provided with the engine. This fuel hose type will emit fuel vapors
that have been shown to harm the environment. This issue can be
corrected by replacing the fuel hose and primer bulb assembly on the
above listed outboard models.
Please note that if the engine is not serviced to correct this issue, it may fail a state or local emission test.
What should you do?
Contact an authorized Evinrude/Johnson dealer and make an
appointment to have the fuel hose and primer bulb assembly inspected or
replaced. This service will be performed at no charge. Transportation of
the boat to the dealer and related hauling expenses are the
responsibility of the owners.
What to do if you feel this notice is in error.
This notice was mailed to you according to the most current information we have available. Affected Evinrude E-TEC outboard(s) must
be serviced. If you no longer own your Evinrude E-TEC outboard, kindly
