Why Fresh Gas is Important for Snow Blowers. Leaving gasoline in your snow thrower can have negative effects. Over time, gas turns to varnish and can gum up the spark plugs and fuel lines. Every spring empty the gas and when you refuel your snow blower, add fuel stabilizer to keep the fuel fresh.

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.Fuel Revitalizer

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.
