    I always mix my own. Stay away from BP gas. I usually run Sunoco or Shell.

    Your problem could be a number of things. I would start out by trying fresh gas, see if your choke is stuck. Check to make sure your primer bulb is not dry rotted. If it is, it will suck air in with the gas, which would give the symptoms you describe.

    It's best to mix your own gas and a lot cheaper too. You never know for sure if their premix is right or not.
  4. I would say checking the spark on all plugs would be smart. One bad coil could cause you fits. I know.
