It's flippin cold out ---- I drained the tank. There is about an 1/8 inch of gas left in the bottom. As I rock the machine back and forth I can see tiny droplets that I suspect to be moisture. I poured a can of HEET in the empty tank and sloshed it around. I left the gas line disconnected to let the mixture drip out. Once I can feel my fingers and toes again I'll put it together with fresh gas and try it again

If using Heet you should not have to do any draining as it is suppose to stick to the icy water and go through the carburetor to be burned in the cylinder.The idea is so you don't have to remove the carburetor to clean it. Only if it doesn't work then as a last resort you remove the carburetor.

Hi gochargers, if the reg gas you buy has 10% ethanol there is no need for heet, and the gas should not drip out of the tank it should run at a good full stream. it it isn't moisture or some blockage in the gas hose then the carb may need a good cleaning.

I'm always very careful not to get gasohol in my mowers or motorcycle. Some one told me it was hard on the rubber parts in the small motor carbs. Right or not - that's my protocol

Nothing much worked today so I'll find a heated shop some where, I'll remove the tank and clean it and dry it. Hopefully the carb wont have to come off ----- but I'm not holding out much hope

I think I got it. Complete drain and rinse of the tank - dropped bowl off carb and cleaned - ran a copper wire thru main jet "ports" and reassembled. It ran 10 minutes til it ran out of the little bit of gas that was in the tank, so I refilled the tank. It ran 15 more minutes under a lite load and didn't miss a beat
