Try checking the spark arrestor inside the muffler. They often get clogged and will not allow the exhaust to escape easily. I had this same issue and spent bou coup cash trying to fix the carb and intake side, then when I was going to check the compression, I removed the 3 screws on the muffler cover and 3 more screws on the spark arrestor and found the little screen was clogged. I cleaned it with carb cleaner and ... VOILA...problem solved. I hope this helps. If you call the company they will recommend a carb kit. Try the spark arrestor first (cheaper and easier, too). I hope this helps.

My mantis tiller with a honda gx22 engine starts then shuts off after approx. 30 sec.


If your unit has a primer bulb, start your engine . When it starts to die push your primer, if the engine comes back to life you have a carb issue.

Hi there is a small stone fuel filter in the tank. this filter stops fuel from running back into the tank from the carb check to insure it still on and make sure there are no cracks or hole in fuel line that should fix your problem

How much gas to mix the oil in?


First check that your Mantis needs an oil/gas mixture, most of the newer Mantis tillers have four-stroke motors meaning they have oil in the crankcase and use straight gas. If your Mantis needs oil mixed in the gas use a 50:1 ratio. That's usually 2.6 ounces of two-cycle oil (it's sold in bottles that size) to one gallon of gas but read the oil bottle to get the proper mix ratio.

I replaced the fuel filter but the purge pump


Faulty valve inside it. Try stripping it down and gently blowing into it.Do not use compressor air as it may damage the valve.

Tiller would start then quickly dies.


If you look inside the gas tank, there is a small little gas filter attached to a small plastic tube.
Fish the gas filter out with a small wire.
Replace the filter with a new one.
Please let me know if that works.

Mantis tiller 2 cycle seemed as if it was running out of gas


Check fuel filter and lines, if thay are good I would get a carb kit and set the adjustment screws at 1 turn out from lightley seated to start. Don't lean high speed screw too much.
You might check muffler & cylinder port for carbon first.
