I never know when I'm having my leg pulled.

chucklesR Fuel shut off, key shut off, reverse the fuel shut off, i.e. fuel on for next week.

Prevents future 'why won't this damn thing start' moments next week.
Trust me, been there. Remembered about 10 cranks, 10 minutes of staring at the engine, forty strands of hair and 10 seconds before the Admiral dialed Towboat U.S.

teshannon If you turn the key off first you risk screwing up the electrical system.
