How old is the gas? With today's gas you can expect it to be good for about a month without a preservative like STA-BIL, maybe a few months with that. Really, it makes a huge difference. I have a MS 170 and love it but it does love fresh gas.

Further to the above, be aware that for a 2 stroke engine you should be using marine formula Sta-bil for best results.

It has an additional component that combats the tendency of the Ethanol to cause the oil to separate from the gas. It also does better at preventing moisture absorption.


Best of luck.
