Hello, and thank you for choosing Just Answer. My name is***** will be happy to assist you. Did you notice the white exhaust prior to added more gas to your fuel tank?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
No, I added the fuel before starting the engine. This is the first time after the summer.

Thanks for this information. Check your oil level. Also, check to see if your oil smell like gas is mixed in with it. Have you tilted your mower for any reason recently?

I had to look this up. Engine: Troy Bilt179CC. The oil level is fine. I have checked it. This is not a mower. It is a snow thrower.

Thanks for confirming. Have you tilted your snow thrower recently? Thanks for the engine information also.

Expert:  Donald replied 1 year ago.

If your oil level is fine, and it does not smell like gas, the white smoke should clear after a few minutes of running your engine.
