    Add some seafoam to your fuel. Stuff works wonders. You can get it at walmart or any auto parts store.

    Clean the carbs and gas tank, or no amount of an additive will keep it going.

    After you clean the carbs. Use seafoam on a regular bases to help keep them clean. This is the best stuff on the market in my opinion.

    John once you tried it you won't regret it. Put some in your weed eater first and notice the difference as to how it throttles up.
