I rarely use mine also. This is a big problem if you use ethanol gas. I have heard people complain of problems after a few weeks. If you use non ethanol gas and put some kind of Sea foam or stabil in the tank when you fill up you should be good.
With that said I am having problems myself with ...

Ran my boat today. I changed the spark plugs before I left the house. Old ones did not look bad but for $12 its one less what if. I also filled up a new 5 gal tank with non ethanol gas and added a bottle of "mechanic in a bottle" additive. It ran really rough at about 3500-4500 rpms with a lot o...

There are many streams in Ascension that have reached period of record levels in the last 2 days. ie. highest it has been in the last 20-30 years
Could some of this been caused by urbanization... sure. More than likely it is because the event that happened yesterday was a 100 year event.

If you have a guy on 3rd with less than 2 outs in a tie/end game situation you are looking for somthing up so you can get a fly ball. This weekend I can thi...
