I've seen 3 suggestions.
1/ start and run the machine for a few minutes once a month during the layup season.
2/Use a fuel stabiliser.
3/ Run the machine to a stop a few times and use the starter bulb
while doing so to ensure all fuel is flushed out of the system
No 2 would be the easiest. No 3 the most effective. No.1 a p.i.t.a.
Anyone any experiences of these .
Or use Easystart when the time comes to start it in the Spring?
If the gasket and other bits in the carb has degraded by the ethanol
even that won't help.
Then use Super Unleaded. Some of which is ethanol free:
"Although our pumps have E5 labels on them, our Synergy Supreme+ 99 is
actually ethanol free (except, due to technical supply reasons, in
Devon, Cornwall, North Wales, North England and Scotland). Legislation
requires us to place these E5 labels on pumps that dispense unleaded
petrol with ‘up to 5% ethanol’, including those that contain no ethanol,
which is why we display them on our Synergy Supreme+ 99 pumps"
