The reason I asked was because 2 and 4 stroke engines can have different problems.

I dont think having a motor in gear should make any difference if it is a carb problem starting.

Maybe a fuel pump diphram or sucking air somewhere is my guess.

and as a side note

Two stroke mixed gas will last way longer than regular gas.

It doesn't matter. Ethanol fuel will cause problems. Same with any additive that contains alcohol.
