I don't know what methyl hydrate is. The best injector cleaner that I know of that can be simply added to the fuel tank is Chemtool B-12 fuel injector cleaner. Do not allow it to get on your paint.

But, I don't think that sluggish fuel injectors is your problem. I'd take it somewhere that knows how to check the fuel injector system and controller.

Good Luck

Sounds like a carb issue...make sure you have fresh ,clean gas.You havent got water in your carb/tank have you? I would start by taking the carb apart and give it a really good clean.Check all jets and orifices.Another words,take apart anything in the carb that you can,clean and replace.

Saw runs for 5 minutes and bogs out


This is sometimes caused by dirt in the gas tank. When the saw is off and being moved around the dirt settles to the bottom. The saw will start OK and rev up but after a while the dirt gets shaken up and sticks to the fuel filter in the tank. When enough dirt covers the filter the saw looses power or dies all together. Sometimes it will get enough gas to idle but not enough to run at high speed. With the tank half full, shake the saw to get all the dirt stired up and dump it out. Put a little gas in it and shake & dump it again. If you can fish the fuel line with the filter on it out, remove the filter and either replace it or blow it out. If this doesn't cure all your problems you may have leaks in the fuel line to the carb that are letting in more air than gas causing your power problems.

Weed eater bogs down when i try to give it full throttle, won,t get up enough speed and torque to trim grass. i tried new gas, spark plug, and still doesn,t help.


have to adjust the high on the carb. should have, 3 screws, 2 that are together is your h for high, and L for low. the one by itself is for idle. when mackine is running, squeeze throttle and adjust the high til it clears up, if it stalls real fast, back counter clockwise while off, and try to restart it, if worse, go the other way. i do mine by 1/4 turns. keep count of turns in case your going the wrong way! hope this helps!

This is a lawnboy mower about twenty years old and has run fine intil about a week ago. Now...after starting...It will surge up and down at full speed...then start to bog down unless throttle is placed...


drain all gas out of the tank and carb the new gas with 10% ethenal is ruining old gas engines after everything sits for a day install a plastic shut off valve in gas line. put high test gas with the seafoam then turn gas valve off after every use it will run good. then call your congressman and complain otherwise we will all be replacing any engine older than 4 years old

I have a 1990 Ford Bronco 5.0L Eddie Bauer. It takes a while to keep the truck idle but when it warms up it seems to stay idle but will die every once in a while. I have to feather the gas pedal to keep...


I cannot see any of the other comments that have possibly been posted to you by others. It sounds as though the fuel pump is not "feeding" enough gas and is peetering out at high speeds.....by chance have you done a fuel pressure check? Also, the fuel filter can give you some problems similar to this.

Waiting for your reply.......

Echo gas leaf blower bog down


Likely dirt in high speed needle valve(H); could be leaky fuel line(air leaking in), plugged fuel filter, pinched fuel line, etc - anything restricting flow of fuel. Likely, you aggravated an existing problem by cleaning the air filter which would have been providing some choke effect if it were partially plugged.
