place that is well ventilated away from open flame
or sparks. NOTE: The use of a fuel additive, such
as STA-BIL
, or an equivalent, will minimize the
®
formulation of fuel deposits during shortage. Such
additives may be added to the gasoline in the fuel
tank of the engine, or to the gasolinee in a storage
container.
After Extended Storage
CAUTION: Prior to restarting, thaw out any pos-
sible ice from pressure washer hoses, spray gun
or wand.
Engine Maintenance
During the winter months, rare atmosheric
conditions may develop which will cause an
icing condition in the carburetor. If this develops, the
engine may run rough, lose power and may stall. This
temporary condition can be overcome by deflecting some
of the hot air from the engine over the carburetor area.
NOTE: Refer to the engine manufacturer's manual for
service and maintenance of the engine.
