Default Re: using choke to kill engine?

Using the fuel petcock to stop fuel flow before shutting down the engine can cause a lean condition and reduce the amount of available lubrication, which can contribute to premature wear and difficulty starting.

Personally, I'd just shut off the fuel after engine shutdown, choke or otherwise.
