    Does my 2017 Tracker Pt190 have a fuel pump in/on the gas tank??

    My 2017 Mercury 115 Pro XS suddenly quit running while on the water this week. After stopping the engine turned over fine but wouldn't even think about starting so I am hoping it is fuel related. Nothing obvious under the engine cowling but before I take it in for service I was wondering if it could be the fuel pump on the Tracker gas tank? If possible is there some way for me to check/test the fuel pump?
    Thanks

    Your fuel tank does not have a fuel pump.

    Post in the mercury 2.5L forum…..you’ll get expert advice there from Don Weed (European Marine) or Savage.

    Check your fuel line, there is a good chance the internal liner may have degraded and sent pieces of that liner into the fuel filter and worst case scenario in the fuel pump (it does happen). Best case scenario you are replacing a fuel line and a filter, worst case you are replacing the above and a fuel pump unless you know how to dismantle the pump and clear it out yourself.

    His question would need to be posted in the Mercury 4 stroke forum.

    A lot of boat owners on here have had issues with the atwood fuel demand valve. You might want to check that.
