Re: Outboard Starting Procedure

"Do not run a 2stroke motor till it dies from lack of fuel just till it starts to run out"
IIRC, every two-stoke maker actually says to turn off the fuel supply and run the engine until it exhausts the fuel and dies, in order to get fuel out of the fuel system so it will not clog up before putting the engine away for prolonged storage.
So, objectively, the engine makers are all condoning the practice of running the engine till the fuel is totally exhausted.
