Before you use your snowblower.....

Make sure you start with an empty clean fuel jug. Don't use anything that you have leftover from the lawnmower even if it has stabilizer. Do not buy gas until the weatherman says it's going to snow! Make sure the valve under the fuel tank (if you have one) is in the open position. During snow storms any time you are taking a break, depress the auger lever a couple of time before you let it sit to clear it out. If you don't, it may freeze and you will ruin the auger belt right away when you go back to use it. When the storm is over, if you have a fuel valve, shut it off & run the carb out of gas. Any trouble call us, we are here to help. 781-245-3080

Buying your fuel on the water?

If you buy your fuel on the water and plan on using your boat through the fall, now is a good time to change your fuel filter. If you don't have a fuel water separator filter on your boat, and you have a built in fuel tank, you really should install one. They start at under $40.00 and can help avoid fuel issues.

FUEL TIPS FOR YOUR CARBURATED OUTBOARD MOTOR.

 Use your fuel up within 4-6 weeks, after that it is better to start fresh. If it takes you all season to use up one tank, start by buying less. Fuel stabilizer for ethanol gas is always a good idea. When you are leaving your motor and it will be at least a week before you use it again, shut off the fuel valve (on integral tank motors) or un plug your remote tank fuel line and let the carb run out of fuel and do not hook up the line again or turn the valve back on until you use the outboard again.
