Re: strange fuel color
Based on what you are saying, I think you have old fuel (darker )in front of new. I would try to purge all the fuel into a container that you can look at closely. I am thinking you will find the newer fuel but you may also be finding trash or rust as I don't think fuel lines were stainless from the factory or at least I haven't seen any, I think once you strain the fuel via fuel filters, you should be getting clean fuel into the carb.
Your climate is or should be dry with not much water getting into service station tanks, but there are some stations that have issues.
With the E85 fuel around the corner , I would consider replacing fuel lines with the newer poly type unless there are safety concerns, use stainless.
