Tip & How-To about Garden
The #1 issue pertaining to outdoor power equipment is start and run problems usually related to fuel. ever since the EPA government mandates for E-10 fuel we have experienced a high rate fo problems from fuel. the best solution is prevention. first never purchase more fuel than you will use in 2-3 weeks. second always use a fuel stabiliser w/ 89 octane or higher. never store fuel in unsealed container. always run unit with stabiliser until empty for long term storage. the reason for these steps is because E-10 fuel is very unstable i.e. it breaks down quickly when exposed to atmosphere and the ethanol binds with water and atmospheric moisture also just because the pump say's 10% only meens there is a minimum of 10% ethanol in that fuel i have seen percentages up to 20-30% in E-10 fuel. ethanol also has a cleaning property to it so if you get a little bit of varnish in your carb. it can become loosened and lodge in internal ports of carb. rendering it useless
