Hi, my name is ***** ***** me review the issue, and I will be more than happy to help resolve it as quickly as possible.

Expert:  JON replied 2 months ago.

GAS HAS A SHELF LIFE OF 30 DAYS. GAS WILL NEED TO BE REMOVED FROM TANK AND FRESH FUEL PUT IN. TRY TO START. YOU ARE MOST LIKELY GOING TO HAVE A CLOGGED CARB JET IF FUEL WAS IN MACHINE THE ENTIRE TIME AND WILL NEED TO REMOVE THE CARB AND CLEAN IT, BUT SOMETIMES FRESH FUEL CAN HELP. IF NOT REMOVE THE CARB AND CLEAN IT WITH CARB CLEANER
