    Try to find ethanol free gas, keep tank full between uses, and use a stabilizer. There's a website for locating gas stations that sell ethanol free gas. They are often found in areas where boats often fill up. Also, condensation can build up in tanks that are not full.

    Ed is correct. Ethanol gas is not good for small engines.
    "Force fetch isn't about retrieving as much as it is conditioning a dog to handle pressure, in a very controlled environment. It's about putting a dog in the position of having to figure out how to turn off pressure by finding the correct response. This translates into numerous areas in training." Sharon Potter.

    If you units are a bit older and you have been running the ethanol fuels, there is a good chance the fuel lines have broke down in your two cycle motors. Make a hook out of a coat hanger and reach in the tank and pull out the fuel line and filter. If your line is black rubber it will need replaced. Check the line for a spongy, super soft feeling.
    My dad made a great living replacing small engine fuel lines, since the introduction of ethanol fuels.
    The newer equipment has vinyl lines that last much longer in the fuel of today.
    Ethanol is not good in engines not designed for the newer blends.
    The additives will help you, as mentioned above.
