Question about Poulan Pro Chain Saw 46cc 20"
Yes, anything can be fixed, well almost. I've had the same problem with small engines. Start by taking the plastics off, you should be able to find the rest of the fuel line that goes to the primer bulb. Then from the bulb to the carb. You need to the correct size fuel line and replace it and put on a new filter. Just remember, if it damaged the lines, the carb needs to be removed and soaked or replaced. To keep from going through this again I recommend the pre mix two cycle fuel, just make sure the ratio is correct, chainsaws are usually 50:1 and other small engines run 40:1

Just drain the tank and refill with diesel fuel. Hit the starter for a second and leave the key on for the fuel to prime. You may have to do this a couple times to get it to start. Run it down the highway at normal cruising speed for a while and it should be ok. I wouldn't worry about the injectors yet unless it doesn't recover on it's own.

I wouldn't say the ethanol is the problem, but perhaps the brand of gasoline. I can tell you that many cars including my own run crappy on certain gasolines (even though all gasoline contains 10% ethanol), when they get older. For example I get horrible gas mileage on Exxon gas, while I get wonderful mileage on Shell or BP gas. Experiment with that a little and if there is no improvement you (or if your not sure how a shop that deals with generators can do it for you) can adjust the idle and check any filters that may be one the generator.

Time for a carb cleaning. The cheapest is to do the leg work yourself by taking off the carb. and tearing it down. Do not remove any security star screws as this is an indication of an injection molded gasket that cannot be purchased. Take it to a shop that has a sonic cleaner. My honda dealer does it for $25, and it will run like new again.

SOURCE: I have a Poulan 14"
Inside the fuel tank, there is a small flexible fuel line with a float (or sinker) attached. The float (or sinker) is supposed to keep the end of the fuel line submerged in the fuel. The float (or sinker) may be detached, or stuck, or it may be saturated and won't float (if it's the floating kind).
Good luck, Al K
