Hi all,

Just purchased a used 24" 208cc Dual-Stage. Only used a couple times but owner said that gas had not been changed since winter '15. Is this a draining situation or siphon? How would I go about draining if necessary?

Definitely a draining situation. IMHO it's a remove the tank and flush and remove the carb and clean situation. Today's gas with ethanol can cause a lot of damage in 2 years

I'd drain it through the carb plug then add fresh gas with a fuel cleaner.

I agree with the earlier posts. Even a tablespoon or so of residual bad gas can harm your engine. Do everything you can (drain, flush, use Sea Foam or similar).

On the bottom of the carburetor. If there are 2 bolts then remove the offset bolt, not the one in the center. Use a funnel, drain into a clear soda container so you can see if the fuel is clear, discolored, orange, or if there is water in the gas.
