Following these 3 habits, or not, can make all the difference, between a nightmare engine and a dependable one.
I use stabilizer, and was actually wondering whether running the carb dry is a good idea. Is it? What about moisture?

I would like to do something different, as I really appreciate a working motor when I need it.
