Question: What should I do to get my machine ready for the winter?

Answer: There are several things that are rather important to increase the chances of your machine starting in the spring without a severe work over by your small engine technician.  Below are a list of things that need to be completed, in the order of importance in my opinion.  

1.  Service your fuel system:
  • A. Stabilize your fuel and run the engine for several minutes to allow the fuel stabilizer to permeate the fuel sysem OR
  • B. Drain your fuel and run the engine out of gas OR
  • C. Perform "A", shut off the in-line fuel shut off and then run the engine out of fuel.
2.  Change the engine oil.
3.  Disconnect the negative battery cable (or both) from the battery. Optionally, remove the battery from the equipment and store it in a warm and dry place.


For a complete winterizing guide, with detailed instructions, go to the "A complete guide to winterizing your 4-cycle power equipment engine" guide.
