    Rolo, When you say the Monitor shows out of fuel, exactly what do you mean? What model stove is it that is giving you trouble and how long have you had it? Thanks, Tom

    Did you freeze to death or did you get the Monitor going? We are dying to know here.

    Have you checked pressure at heater to make sure it has pressure or it could be air locked.Not really sure what you are asking can you tell me a little more information on what is going on. does the rinnai try to light

  • Thomas Hawkins May 11, 2010


    How did you determine the stove was "out of fuel"? The light bars flash anytime the stoves quits for any reason. We need more info.
    Try the stove and listen around the lower right side of the unit until the cycle is complete. If you hear a bumping noise just before it stops you have a fuel problem. NO bumping and a flame, you have other problems. Keep us posted

Need to drain fuel tank

Okay, this is going to sound a bit different but it works. It is simple and will remove most of the gasoline with the least effort.

Go online and look up the fuel pump Relay and "jumping" this Relay for your year and model car. I did this for my 2002 Grand Marquis and removed about 16 gallons in about 15 minutes. Remove the fuel pump Relay and put a decent gauge wire in the #27 and #34 terminals in the Powerbox only when you want to pump out the gas. Verify these 2 terminals with the article about jumping a Relay. This will cause the fuel pump to run continuously, use only when ready.

You will need a Tire valve stem removal tool and a length of rubber fuel line(4-5 feet) about 1/4 to 5/16 inner diameter. On the Drivers side of the fuel rail there is a test port. It has a valve similar to a tire stem. Remove the valve core. Insert the fuel line over this test port and secure with a small hose clamp.

Have a fuel container ready to pump fuel into. In a well ventilated area you are now ready to pump fuel.

Since the fuel tank has baffles there is little way to drain the tank without dropping the tank and turning in a way to allow for the fuel to run out.

Even disconnecting the disposable fuel filter is not without complications and you would still need to trigger the fuel pump. So for the expense of rubber hose and a valve stem tool the above method is easier.

Suzuki 50 moped ran out of fuel

Hi, Dawn if you have an old bike that has not had regular fuel system maintenance and you run the fuel tank dry I feel your pain. All the contaminants water-dirt-rust-liner paint flakes-ethanol sludge etc. that lived in the bottom of your fuel tank get mixed with the last few oz. of fuel left in the tank and enter the fuel system clogging up fuel filters-fuel valves-fuel lines-carburetor jets-needle jets and seats-fuel injectors etc. You fill up your fuel tank and guess what your bike does not start or if it does it runs poorly, a complete cleaning of the fuel system is mandatory, the procedure is as follows:
1. Drain the fuel tank and inspect the inside for leftover uninvited guests decontaminate as necessary for rusty environments install a liquid fuel tank liner.
2. In tank fuel pumps with external filters need to be cleaned.
3. Fuel valves need to be rebuilt with a new gasket kit.
4. Fuel lines need to be inspected for integrity and replaced as necessary any inline fuel filter should be cleaned or replaced.
5. Carburetors need to be disassembled then "DIPPED" and soaked in a commercial carb cleaning solution Gunk sells 1/2 gallon pails with meshed screen baskets. Reassemble using new rebuild kits. Record all jet sizes and float level for fine-tuning.
6. Fuel injectors and fuel rails need to be properly cleaned and tested for optimum performance, if necessary send off any suspect injectors to "" for a modest fee they will refurbish the unit back to factory specs.

Have you cleaned the tank, fuel can cause steel to rust, drain carbs and blow the jets out. Then make sure you change (or fit) the in line fuel filter, they are cheap and easy to replace and save problems like this.

This a common problem after they have set up over the winter. Water has probably condensated in your gas tank and now it is in the gas line. The tank should be drained of old gas and the gas line to the carb should be removed from the tank and blown out with compressed air to remove all old gas/ water. Attach the gas line back to the tank and refill the tank with new fuel. This should take care of the problem. To avoid this next time, just fill your gas tank to the top at the end of the season and leave it full through the winter.

My lawn mower will not stay started

Since it starts, it doesn't sound like an electrical problem, it sounds like it runs out of air. To test this, remove the air filter, start it and see if it stays running. If so, replace the air filter.

It could also be varnish or sludge in the carb bowl. This is best serviced by a technician if you have little mechanical prowess.

After sitting for 3 years, I would at minimum do all of this before I expected it to run ok:

  1. Change the oil.
  2. Replace the air filter.
  3. Drain the fuel tank by removing the fuel line from the engine end (not the tank end).
  4. Replace the spark plug.
If the above did not work I would drop the carb bowl and clean it, then add one ounce of carb cleaner to a full tank, and let it run (roughly if necessary) through the engine.

After sitting 3 years I would also replace the fuel line itself!
