It wouldn't hurt. But, unless you can see the air filter is filthy, I doubt if this is the problem. Air issues are usually not intermittent.

. The engine
is designed to run without them. If you think you have bad fuel, try feeding the engine from an alternate fuel source. For example, disconnect the fuel hose from your fuel tank and temporarily connect it to a portable container of newly purchased fuel. You will have to bleed the engine fuel system to ensure no air is in the line when changing fuel sources. This will let you know if the tank fuel is bad.

Also, it is good practice to write with a Sharpie on all filters the date changed and engine hours at the time of the exchange.

- Fuel lines partially obstructed
- Foreign object in induction system or clogged filter
- Water in fuel
- Broken fuel lines
- Air vent in fuel tank obstructed
