  2. I run regular gasoline, mixed with a wee bit more 2-cycle oil than specified, and Seafoam, and I let my Echo chainsaw and weed wacker sit for up to a year at a time. They still always start with three pulls. Seafoam is magic. It keeps my motorcycle perfomance top notch too.

    Ethanol will go to work on a lot of different types of rubber used in gaskets and fuel lines. This was a problem for a lot of older cars when ethanol winter blends started showing up 20 or so years ago. Ethanol also binds water, so the longer it sits without a fuel stabilizer, the more that gas will grab moisture from the air and foul the gas.

    If you can't start it, use carb cleaner to clean off the carb and the gas filter inside the fuel tank and be sure to spray some inside the little hose that goes from the tank to the carb. I've done this many times. Also if you have a spark arrestor on the muffler, take it off before you start it. This has been the problem for many a cutter. I have seen people replace the carb and the electronics and it was because the spark arrestor screen was clogged.

    It's been 4 months. If Steve doesn't get his saw running soon some silver tongued devil with a working saw will stroll through the neighborhood and steal his woman!
