I had the same problem on my 1 year old 4 stroke 4HP Tahatsu.

The solution was looking at a you tube video to know how the carb came off... Then, I pulled the carb off, removed the jets, cleaned the jets by just blowing the gunge out, cleaned the inside of the bowl with paper towels, put it back together and added fresh non-ethanol gas.

It took longer to pull the outboard off the dinghy onto the dock and put it back onto the dinghy after it was all cleaned then it took to clean the carb. It has ran great ever since.
