I’m not sure if I am able to empty out the gas and oil tanks of my lawn equipment. I have a gas trimmer, riding mower and a plate compactor.
What’s the best approach?

Spend an full day cleaning and 'getting it right', so it would not surge or stumble. Get nasty carcinogens all over me, waste a day, and sometimes have to go back and do it again. Then I discovered for about the same money I could order a new carb online and slap it on. Problem solved.

I would gladly pay $4 to avoid cleaning carburetors, but $23.25 is absurd
