Please help with gas leak from my auger.
I was recently given an older auger that hadn't been used in years. I replaced both the cap gasket and the fuel line before I put the first drop of gasoline into the tank. Both looked OK,neither looked pristine. Both are common sources of leaks....
Then yesterday I took out my 2 year old Eskimo and it wouldn't run. It ran fine a month ago.... Fuel line rotted off at the tank gasket. Next time I buy that size line,I'm buyin' 3 dam feet! ...and I'm not even a regular wrencher on small engines. Well,maybe I am but I'm not a gearhead: Had'a have help last Saturday figuring out the reason for no spark on a snowblower. Bad coil.
Take it in for a tune-up and you'll be set for the next 5 years.
DO NOT STORE ANYTHING WITH GAS IN THE HOUSE. Your furnace or hot water tank could ignite the gas fumes.
Also try a product called SEAFOAM. It is in a white metal can and available at menards,fleet farm and most auto parts stores.
Good luck and tell us how you do.
