Pour a little down the spark plug hole and down the carburetor, rotate the crankshaft a few times then forget about it. Always worked for me.


I use a product called 'fogging oil' from NAPA. It's an aerosol oil that you spray in the sparkplug hole.......used it for years and it works great!
You're never lost until you run outa gas.
