No more really warm days until spring so I need to put the motor
scooter away for the winter.
I read that if I am not going to use my entire container of Sta-Bil
this fall, I have to add Sta-Bil-Bil, to keep it from gumming up.
But I can't find a place that sells it. ??
That makes no sense. Adding Stabil to avoid gumming of Stabil? What if
the Stabil addition gums up when it was supposed to help the original
Stabil from gumming up?
I've used Stabil in the past with no problems. It sat on my shelf for
several seasons. Though now, I use Seafoam and it also sits on my shelf
for several seasons because I buy several cans when there's a sale. I've
never experiencing it, in itself, gumming up. If it ever did or ever
does, I would never use it again since that's what it's supposed to
avoid when applied to gas and oil.

I switched from Stabil to Seafoam and also PR-G (gasoline) and PR-D) several years ago. I had heard Of a connection between Stabil and Briggs & Stratton which triggered my change. Could have been old wives tale but who knows.

of season I fill the tank of the snow blower or lawn mower and then - this is key - I start each
once a month. I have my snow blower on a dolly so it's easy to roll out of the corner of the
garage and out into the driveway to start. The lawn mower is much lighter, so that's easy
to pull out. Once a month keeps everything fresh and flowing.
ETQ brand generator, two stroke.
I ran the motor dry each time, so
as not to let the gas go stale.
Now, it's got a noticable piston rod
knock.Owner manual says to leave it
wet, turn it off with the switch.
Well, it's done now..... live and learn.
Also only starts with ether. Nice little
generator. Fairly light weight, quiet,
and after all the work to get it going,
provides reasonable power.
