where do I get fuel without ethonal
Technician: Donald, Small Engine Technician replied 10 months ago

Walmart in many areas have non-ethanol fuel. If you cannot locate non-ethanol fuel, there is a fuel additive called Ethanol Shield that you can add to your fuel if it has ethanol.

If you have some carburetor cleaner in a can, remove your air filter and spray a small burst directly into your carburetor. Sometimes this will cause your engine to start.
