Thanks for all the advice. I will run it with plenty of fresh fuel in. It was serviced prior to pick up so it should be all but ready for winter. However as some of the best days of the year can be on a still sunny winters day I will hopefully be using it through out. Snow and ice are not too common in darkest west Cornwall.

Agreed. Done it for 20 yrs, often half full in Sept then left until May, fill them up with fresh at the start of the season, all is good.

Yep, same here. But I regularly add Redex injector cleaner throughout the year

Agree about fuel, add fresh and all is well, (or it has been for me). I run mine on the muffs once a month through winter, (unless its freezing cold, always had a concern there may be iced water near the impellor). Charge the battery once a month. You're always ready then, just in case there is a mild day and you can get out for a blast
