I was getting tired of reading all of the stories about problems, thinking that we were blowing the situation out of proportion. Then it happened to me. Both mine and my brother's F7s died due to low gas level, then I broke my rope trying to restart mine. The gas tank seems to waste space since the pickups flop around and don't ride low in the tank. I had 7 miles, rope looked frayed but not bad, now I'm dropping both off at dealer and hopefully can get my recall parts installed so I can still go to Grand Marais MI this Friday! I'll fix it myself if I have to. Don't neglect these issues, luckily I was home and not in the middle of the woods!
