I am running fuel with ethonol in it, because it's really all that's available. Can I adjust my timing to get the fire lit a little easier? Any suggestions would be appreciated.
Boy I wish I had your cold weather up here. Sounds like you need to change jets or at least get your carb adjusted. You don't say what you have. It also could have some crud in it, with Ethanol, and if you have some rubber for gas line, not a good mix.
