Put it in a gasoline approved carrier and bring it over to your municipal dump. They may have a barrel or container to add it to.

Car will not start


Because the engine turns over means your started had enough voltage to turn ON. You can easily test the voltage on the battery with a volt meter. It should be about 12.0 Volts when the engine is not running. Batteries should normally be charged every few days for about 1/2 hour each time. You can go a short time for a couple of weeks without charging as long as you don't get in to a habit of doing that. If you went for months without running your car; I assumed you had to replace the battery already or your battery would not have been able to turn over the engine or hold a charge.

The automatic door locking is the least of your problems. It might be your car did not have a battery of proper voltage for an extended period of time.

Gasoline does not age well if you did not place any additive for prolonged storage. Even the additive for prolong storage says about a 6 month period. Maybe you should take out some gasoline from your tank to see if it still looks good. I normally don't fill my tank but every 1 to 2 months (without a problem) with no additive added, but 1 year is a long time. My guess is 1 year old gasoline may have changed over time and thickened and it could have contaminated your fuel system.

Depending on how old and how much fuel is in the tank can affect your next step. If the fuel is the problem; you will have to drain the tank and possibly have someone use one of the pressurized fuel cleaning treatments. You might need a new fuel filter, and I know there is a pressure regulator to return the fuel to the tank as well as fuel injectors and the fuel rail. I have never had gasoline that old, so you might need a professional mechanic if you are dealing with old fuel in the system.

The only gasoline I trust to age over time is Coleman fuel in a sealed container (also known as white gas). This can be found where they sell outdoor camping equipment. I don't know if that will help, but I had to run 1 gallon of this in 1992 Oldsmobile 88 because there was no gasoline. Coleman fuel is ultra refined gasoline without the extra additives they normally put in gasoline.

C950-52474-6 snowblower starts but don't stay ignited


Many small engine problems such as you described are fuel related. In today's world, most of our gasolines are blended with ethanol and thus gasoline shelf life has been reduced to 4-6 months. It is important that after each season's use you be certain to run the snowblower until all gasoline in the tank and carburetor have been used - effectively running the snowblower out of gas. If you did't do that last season the "old" gasoline in the carburetor has began to gum up and will not let the carburetor mix fuel and air properly. The solution will be to remove, disassemble and clean the carburetor. It is likely the gas tank will also need to be drained, removed, and cleaned. If you are unable to do this you will need to take to a qualified small engine mechanic in your area.

Lastly and, very importantly, make certain when you are ready to use your repaired snowblower that you use FRESH gasoline. And, remember the first part of this discussion at the end of the season.

The motor missed fire an acceleretion . after the truck was stop over 1 mounth.(escape 2003)


I'll bet it misfires because of the old gasoline. Since it was sitting for that long, you should remove the old gasoline from the car and put in fresh gasoline. You might want to put in a can of seafoam in the gas tank as well to clean up anything the old gasoline could have left behind.

Next time, if you're planning to have your car sit for a few weeks or more, put fuel stabilizer (such as Seafoam) into the gas tank before you leave. That way, you can safely start it when you come back.

3000ise wont start by key. New battery


Is the battery charged? If not charge the battery and try it again. Generally most gasoline engines will start and run when these conditions are met:

1. good spark. If the spark plug is old, buy a replacement being sure to get the right plug. Then make sure the spark plug is gapped properly.

2. New fuel. If the fuel has been in the tank for more than two months replace it with new gasoline.

3. Air supply. Take a look at the air cleaner. If it is dirty clean it or replace it.

Food luck.

Improve mileage


Different driving habits load weight and types of trips will make a difference between you and others mpg. Make sure it's tuned properly and you are using the proper gasoline. The gas at the pump is terrible. You could try a gasoline additive to make it run more efficient too. Check that you have the proper tire pressure and that your clutch is adjusted properly And you can always ride slower.,

Poulan weedeater


So your weed eater fails to start. Is the unit fueled up? Since it's a two stoke the gasoline must be mixed with two stroke oil. The mix ratio is 40 to 1. That's 40 parts gasoline to 1 part oil. If there is fuel in the gas tank now, how old is it? If the unit was stored incorrectly the gasoline may have gone bad and gummed up the carburetor. If this is the case, the old gasoline will smell like varnish and the carburetor need to be overhauled and cleaned.
