Tip of the week – What to do to keep your engine running smooth.

The #1 enemy for your engine is lack of use. During those slow months, the best thing to do is to start your engine on a bi-monthly basis. The very best way is to run it in the water. This will allow the fuel to run through the engine at normal operating speeds. If you can’t make it to the water then on a hose is better then nothing. Run it for about 10 min. Do not leave your engine unattended while it is running, it could over heat! Running your engine will also keep your impeller moist.
Add fresh fuel about once a month, and keep your fuel filter clean.
This should keep your wallet fat and your mechanic sad.
