    Hmmm.... I don't remember if I did run my snowblower out of fuel before I put it away for the season. Thanks for the reminder. The snowblower is going to be serviced soon anyway because the gear shift is sticking and also it need its annual oil change.

    It's not hard to just drop the bowl off the carb,and clean up the needle,seat,main jet,idle jet and the mixture screw.It will bring the performance back.While it may run without cleaning them up,it will probably run poorly,as the main jet and\or idle jet will be partially gummed up.
