So I am driving along in my starcraft with a 1978 50hp Envinrude. Suddenly, the engine starts lurching. RPMs seemed to decrease and increase effectively lurching the boat forward in spurts. When I put the enigine in neutral and push throttle forward, it seems to run fine, in gear, it lurches. The only possible explanation I can come up with is that it was a relatively new tank of gas, but we had been driving for a good 30 minutes before the trouble started. I would love to hear any opinions anyone might have before I go to a mechanic.
