It's condensation if you haven't got a leek if you leave the tank full of fuel this should not happen we had this problem for years with combine harvesters and leaving them full and not empty cured the problem

Drain gas completely from tank to ensure no water is in the tank, check for spark with spark tester, if no spark shows with spark tester, re check gap on coil, if points & condenser are present, sand down the gap between the points to ensure a proper connection. Make sure to change fuel filter with a high quality John Deere fuel filter and use fresh fuel... Fuel can "go bad" after 1-3 months, if the tractor is/ left outside chances are there is water in the tank.

check your gas cap ro make sure the air hole is not pluged, try running it without the cap for a few min ans see if that helps, you may also anve got some water in the gas and its at the bottom of the tank and sloshs around and ocassionaly runs to the carb
it mkite not hurt to drain the tank into a clean bucket let it sit for a short bit the four all but cup or so back in as water is heavery than gas
also when you have the tant empty maybe blow it out from the fuel line back to the tank look in to see if anything has come back into the tank

Don't run it! Diesel fuel is more of an oil whereas gas is more volitile... Avoid starting or running to prevent any damage to your engine!

John Deere 445 Garden Tractor, starts immediately,

could be bad gas, but it sounds like a choke problem. did it sit over the winter with less than a half tank of gas in it. try putting some rubbing alcohol in the fuel or draining the tank and disconnecting the gas line so you can drain the gas out of the carb. also check the gap of the spark plug and make sure that is correct. when was the last time there was fresh oil put in. also check the air filter, it could be full of dirt.

Need to siphon gas from gas tank of a John Deere

Go to the store and buy a siphon you would use for a kerosene heater.
You can get the fuel out with this item. When you fill it back up add some "Seafoam" fuel additive. It will help keeps it running better.
Good Day.

Engine stopped running while cutting grass. Engine on a John Deere lawn tractor. Gas filter appear to have no gas in it. Gas tank was half full. Engine had been running for approximately 1/2 hour prior to...

You may have accumulated a little trash, perhaps a little water, and general gunk in the bottom of your gas tank. Either that or a bad fuel pump.

I'd get a new fuel filter, clear plastic kind, and if you have an air compressor or access to one, block the opening of the gas tank, blow compressed air into it, and see if ugly stuff comes out of your tank.

Watch out for blow back out of the tank. I use an old natural sponge like you'd wash a car with, mash it down hard agaunst the openingm and put the blow gun down into the middle. It will take a little while for the pressure to build up enough to blow the stuff out.

Make sure you have the hose down in a can or plastic jug. If the gas comes and freely and is clean, suspect the fuel pump. The filter should have plenty of gas running through it.
