How to Treat and Prevent Stale Gas From Your Cub Cadet Snow Blowers?
Many experts would advise homeowners to change the oils every month, even when not used, to maintain it in its peak condition. This can be a waste of oil, though, since you obviously have no need for your cub cadet snow blowers until next winter. However you also can’t risk leaving stale oil in your equipment, because it can cause the carburetor to corrode. It is important to remember that most of the fuel available on stores are blended with ethanol, a corroding agent. Before oiling your equipment, check for any warning logos or oiling instructions on acceptable ethanol percentage. If the instruction tells you to not use a fuel blend with not more than 10% ethanol, specifically ask for this blend from your local hardware stores.
