    Sometimes assholes push people down stairs.
    That doesn't mean "stairs are bad" nor does it make someone who pushes someone down the stairs any less of an asshole.

    And if you want extra insurance, run ethanol free fuel...

    My 2-strokes (chain saws, weed whacker) get only ethanol-free fuel...

    Generators should, too. Unless you run them dry...

    Sold the snowblower when we moved to the new house (much smaller driveway and the driveway faces South, so no need for a snow blower) but for the 9 years I had a snowblower I'd always top off the tank and run a little bit of Sta-Bil in it. AFAIK there was no way on mine to shut off the fuel so rather than run the carb dry I'd just run it until I was sure there was some sta-bil in the carb. It always started right up when I needed it.

    I did the same thing with the new lawnmower in October, I guess probably some time next month I'll see if that worked out as well but there's no reason to think it won't.

    I only winterized a bike one time, that was in 2003 when I lived in Wyoming. But it stayed winterized with Sta-bil for 20 months (September 03 to April 05) and fired right up when we put a battery to it and pushed the starter. So I guess I'd say I'm a big believer in the value of sta-bil.
