Re: Tohatsu troubles

I have seen a few threads like this one with people advising to use non-ethanol gas, run the carb dry after use, drain the carb, dump gas older than 30 days, ect., and it is all is good advice, but I find it a little strange that I can put ethanol gas in my lawn mower, leave it sit all winter, and in the spring it starts right up. Ok, so I don't advise doing that to your lawn mower, and I understand that a lawn mower is not the same thing as a marine outboard engine, but why don't they make them a little more lawn mower like? A little more forgiving, a little more bullet proof? they just seem to be overly fussy. Is there some kind of reason for this?
