While I don't use mine on the boat I have had fuel
issues, even with religious use of Marine
Stabil, and tried just about every other stabilizer made. My problem is it can sit for six months or more between uses..
Also been through four carbs on our Honda HRX mower but those are now down to $16.00 so not worth cleaning
, just replace it.
The only thing I have found that works is a product called TruFuel
. I run normal stabilized gas in it when it needs to run for a while but then re-fill for storage
and use only TruFuel.
I used to have to clean the carb with some regularity and since I began using TruFuel it just starts, as does my mower..... TruFuel is nothing more than a high purity non-ethanol fuel, with stabilizers and sold at exorbitant prices..
I've now also begun using the pre-mix stuff for my chain saw, weed wacker, leaf blower etc. too and zero issues. Ridiculous pricing but cheaper than my time and effort for carb cleaning..
It does seem to work though, and no, I can't get ethanol free gas in Maine
