Haven't tried yet. Neighbor said he has a siphon so once he digs that out of the garage I think I will try to do a quick drain of most of the gas in there first and replace with fresh. I will update once my mission is complete.
Supposedly its the ethanol that creates the problem in most cases. Most people cant get ethanol free gas anymore. I used to be able to go to the local airport but they wont sell to me anymore.
I know the ethanol is worse, but non-ethanol still gets pretty funky when it's old. Ethanol free is at every station around me, at least any that I've paid attention to. I heard ethanol was harder on older equipment, rubber/seals not made to tolerate it as well. I get it delivered in bulk by truck, for off road/ag use you get the tax back. Not using as much as I once did, diesel/newer tractors are soooo much easier to deal with, sometimes it gets a little stale in the tank, but it's never bothered.
Decided to give it a try at starting today after I ran across a bottle of the two cycle I used last season and noticed it had a fuel stabilizer included in the homelite oil. The snow blower started up after couple easy pulls.
