Hey everyone, Tyson here with your Tech Tip Tuesday. Coming into winter and a lot of your equipment(lawn mowers, generators, pressure washers, etc...) are going to be sitting for a few months not being used. PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE, treat your fuel with some fuel stabilizer. This will ensure your equipment starts and runs fine next season when you need it. Fill your fuel tank up to 95% capacity to reduce the area for condensation to build up and then add the proper amount of fuel stabilizer (usually 1oz for every 2.5 gallons of fuel) to your fuel tank. Run the engine for a minute or so to allow the stabilizer to mix in the tank and work its way to the carburetor bowl. Turn the engine off and, if applicable, turn off the fuel petcock to stop the flow of fuel from your tank to the carburetor. When you pull the equipment out next season, it should be ready to work. Thanks for visiting our weekly blog and hope to see you next week.
