Help with small engine
I know this is a snowblower forum but I really need some help with my lawn mower, so please forgive me.
I've had a John Deere D140 for 4 years now (I bought it new). I've been naughty, typically run E10 93 octane in it and never stabilized it. NEVER had any issues.
But since being here on SBF, you've all convinced me to modify my habits and switch to stabilized E0.
Today was my last time mowing the lawn for the season. I had about a 1/4 tank of the E10 in it. My plan was to start mowing the lawn, knowing I'd run out of gas and then put the stabilized E0 in it. That would give the E0 the opportunity to run through the whole system.
I got about 1/3 of the way through the lawn and ran out of gas as planned, put the new E0 in it and now I cannot get it start back up for the life of me. I have NEVER had a problem like this.
