Re: Kohler shutdown sequence
Yep, and when the ethanol fuel evaporates, it leaves a sticky gum behind that clogs and sticks everything in the fuel system. The worst thing you can do to a small engine is run ethanol fuel in it and then let it sit.
The original poster is running non-ethanol fuel, so he has choices. If you guys think he should not run it dry he probably will be ok to let it sit full, though I would turn the fuel supply off.
A lot of the classic car guys actually like this aspect of modern gasoline, claiming they actually have less carburetor problems with the evaporation. I think where you run into trouble is in humid climates where the ethanol can pull moisture from the air.
