    hi, i have a 30hp evinrude 2 stroke. when i apply throttle i get intermittent misses in power. the more throttle i put on the less time between misses. it seems like starvation of fuel. could this be a problem with the carb?

    Try a pair of new plugs in it.

    If it was fuel starvation how could it keep recovering. Try pumping the bulb as it does it????

    I would run it for a little, sometimes it fixes itself. Sometimes it gets clugged up. Change your spark plugs and with high octane gas run full throttle. See what happens.
