Before you give your snow blower an undeserving swift kick for not starting, take a good look inside your gas tank first.
Every Spring, I religiously drain the gas tank on my snow blower, so the carburetor doesn't gum up.
This Spring was no exception.
However, when the first snow came, I committed a major sin.
Instead of getting fresh fuel from the gas station, I stupidly added last year's left over gasoline into the tank.
I pulled the cord dozens of times, and the snow blower did absolutely nothing.
I'll admit it. I was lazy... and my snow blower didn't start when I needed it most.
Old gasoline is not much different than adding a pitcher of water into the tank.
Basically, the gasoline lost its spark. It needed a shot of high octane energy to ignite it again.
Instead of draining the tank, I mixed about 6 ml of
"Briggs & Stratton Advanced Formula Fuel Stabilizer" with the gallon of old fuel.
While some people may be skeptical, the product actually worked. My snow blower fired up and ran fine.
