It's officially gross fuel recoil from the smell of fuel on the dip stick gross fuel contamination. Compression check came in good...95/105 (factory new is 107).

Another thought I had...I haven't busted out my level, but it appears to me that the carb is lower than the bottom of the fuel tank. I wonder if fuel is slowly flowing through the carb and pooling...gravity wins every time, right? The spark plug threads were wet with fuel when I did the compression test and the engine hadn't run in two weeks.
