Carburetors Biggest Mystery

The Big Question

Most asked question is why does the carburetor clog.

I’ll scratch my head. Look down at the mower and then reset my attention to the customer and just shrugged my shoulders. saying, ” It’s a big mystery. ” We see so many different results, of what happen, but not enough of the same reasons; why.  Even after 15 years of cleaning hundreds of carburetors, on about ever imageable piece of equipment,  I still say, ” I honestly don’t know”.

Here's What We Do Know

Our best suggestion is to purchase small amounts at a time and do not store the fuel inside the equipment more than a month.  It’s not a 100 percent defense but running all the fuel out is better than the other. With the other. you may not be able to just clean alone. You may have to replace the carburetor. Also, if possible, once the gas can is empty try to remember to set it out in the sun and let what’s remaining evaporate. This will help remove any moisture from water.
