Hello, and thank you for choosing Just Answer. My name is***** will be happy to assist you. Will your engine continue to run, after you start it up, using the small drop of gas? If so, check to make sure your choke is fully closing, as you are choking your carburetor. If your engine does not continue to run, check to see if you are getting a steady flow of gas from your fuel tank, to your carburetor. If you are getting gas to your carburetor, then our problem is very likely carburetor related.
