Default A Little Off Topic

I added some Seafoam to the tank of my Ariens 24" Deluxe snow blower and then drained it of fuel the other day. I even pulled the cord several times afterward just to make sure the carb was drained of as much gas as possible.

My question is, is it ok just to leave it alone for the summer? Or, should I add a bit of gas blended with Sta-bil for storage over the winter?

I would just leave it alone--as long as you didn't pour a (quart) in there---

Just write yourself a note about it and tape to handle so you will remember next season--

Agreed -- if it's dry now, leave it dry.

I do the same thing to all of my off season equipment every year. Drain the tanks, start them up till they run dry, add sea foam and crank till its drawn into the carb, pull the plug and pop a little into the hole, crank once more, cap it up tight and leave it alone. When I need it next, I add fuel, turn it over a couple times and it fires right up and runs like a champ!
