I really am starting to wonder about our gas supply.I have an EB480 from 1996,anyway it's got the funky spark arrestor- complete with silly blowholes in the muffler. I love my machine but those "emmisions" parts mean ripping the blower apart and cleaning them every so often- no big deal. Ever since the gas crunch started i have had to rip the thing down 2x- this month alone! Seems like the oil doesn't want to mix clean and burn, I'm no dummy i know how to mix 2 cycle oil. I use pennsoil marine in everything for years now everything is clogging! Is anyone else getting this? Is it a government plot to rid the US of all 2cycle equipt?
