    Was at a job today and I ran out of gas on the one side tank. I switch to the other but it just wouldent start. If I choked it it would run for about 5 second then stop. I could never get it to turn over without choke. Any idea why this would happen? I assume there is no gas in the lines hence no gas to the motor since this is a new mower. Any suggestions welcome!

    There is a little shut off valve on the bottom of the tank, make sure it's on!!!

    I think you may have solved it. There is a little red valvue at the front on the right but on the left its a little differen't and underneath. I turnd it so its horizontal (it was vertical) like the one on the right (which has been working) so I will try it out tomorow.
