* VISUALLY EXPLAINED by Craig Kirkman, a renowned you tube educator of these systems. For more useful information please take a look at my website: https://www.therepairspecialistonline.com/ If you would rather not drain the fuel in your machine to prevent stale fuel from forming then try using a fuel stabiliser. This will keep your fuel nice and fresh for many months. Here is a good stabiliser from Amazon: https://amzn.to/38yVctx Disclaimer: Please understand that the content in this video is based on my own practical experience over the last 25 years as a repair engineer working on this type of machinery.

Thank you so much for viewing this video. I'm very proud to bring it to you. Please let me tell you why I am making these videos! MY MISSION My mission is to take subjects that can seem quite daunting and somewhat difficult to understand and explain them in such a way that everyone can understand and benefit. All too often things are explained to us in a way that is difficult to grasp. I really hope that all of my tutorials are understandable by most, if not all, people who wish to view them. I want to help people understand as I was helped by some fantastic mentors during my years as a University student, in Science, and a trainee apprentice as an engineer. In fact, I could NOT have became a qualified repair engineer, followed by a Science graduate and post graduate, followed by the creation of these videos, if I never had these wonderful people in my life. Sadly, some of them are no longer with us to see these videos, which I really want to dedicate to them. My very first manager (Mr Nadin), who gave me a chance straight out of school despite me not being the most ideal candidate for the position of engineers apprentices at the time. He believed he could make an engineer of me. So first of all, if it were not for him I wouldn't be here with all of this knowledge today. I will always respect him and remain grateful to him for what he did for me. I'm so pleased I achieved an apprentice of the year award in 1994 to give him back some satisfaction that I was working hard, and that his belief in me paid off. I also want to dedicate these to my Father, who is still a practising engineer, for always pushing me into this field and ensuring I applied my mind to it. More than anyone else, I want to dedicate these to my amazing late mother, who nurtured, cared, loved and motivated me all of my life. When I was down she would always reach down and stand me back up again, telling me I was worth something. I only wish I could thank her in person and show her these videos. I realise now that she was my biggest and most amazing mentor. Thank you for 40 Golden years mom. I am always thinking of you! Finally, I want to give all of my love and gratitude to my incredible wife, the only woman I ever have, and ever will, truly love. She is my Rock! She is the only person who believes in me, and supports me, 100% in all of my endeavours. She believed in me from the moment we met, and saw some potential in me. She provided me with two amazing children, who have added a very challenging but completeness to our lives. The issues around lack of engine function and Stale fuel is more common than most people think. During my years as a repair engineer I have encountered this issue very often indeed (most days, in fact). Although this subject in somewhat controversial at best, I have found that fuel is at its best for around 6 weeks after purchase. It then starts to go stale and this WILL cause engine starting and running issues eventually. Bog Down is something I have most certainly encountered with engines using stale fuel. I hope you find it useful and please do check out my other videos on related topics.

Can I use a Flashlight near a Petrol Gasoline Fuel Tank? | See What Happens!!
* VISUALLY EXPLAINED by Craig Kirkman, a renowned you tube educator of these systems. Here in England we commonly use the word 'Torch' for what Americans call a 'Flashlight'. This is why I refer to the flashlight in the video as being a Torch. I do not mean it to be a gas torch with a naked flame because us British commonly refer to these as a Blow-Torch. We are aware that although the British and Americans speak the same language, there are some slight separations within that language. Nothing good or bad, just slight differences. Please understand this when watching this video. Many thanks Craig So, can I use a lit Flashlight near a gasoline fuel tank?

Reference to the molecular structure of Gasoline Fuel: https://www.researchgate.net/figure/Molecules-of-diesel-petrol-and-methane-gases-65_fig6_327168404 Why would you want to know how this works?? Well to answer that lets ask the question, why does college exist? When a trainee mechanic begins his/her career, they do the hands-on work (under supervision) and have a few years studying at college as well. Why?? So that they get the full picture. This way they actually get the repair experience and the theoretical knowledge of what they are repairing. For example, if you took your beloved car to the local garage you would expect the mechanic to have hands-on work experience and studied what they are doing at college level. Why? Because then you know that they know their subject inside-out. You expect this much as a basic standard from any mechanic who works on your car. Why would you cut corners on knowing about your 4 stroke engines the?? The fact is that if you thought about it enough, you probably wouldn't. So here I give the other essential side of the repair work coin. I give the detailed theory as to what is going on. To be honest, most mechanic's do not know how these work exactly, if they were totally truthful, I hope this information has helped Many thanks indeed Craig Kirkman (Owner and creator of the Repair Specialist channel) 4 stroke carburetor / carburettor Please visit our website: https://www.therepairspecialistonline.com/ Please check out my amazon shop.

Stale Gasoline Fuel - Effects on Engine - Make it last longer
* VISUALLY EXPLAINED by Craig Kirkman, a renowned you tube educator of these systems. In this video I show you why fuel is not designed to be stored very long. I personally will only keep fuel for around 4-6 weeks if I haven't treated the fuel with a quality fuel stabilizer. I know this is a controversial topic because many people I know in the trade, including myself, have used fuel that is older than 6 weeks old and it has been fine, but at other time I have used it at around this age and it has caused engine problems.
