    I need to drain gas out of my Husqvarna ST230P snowblower. As a new owner, I let gas stay in the tank for two months without running the snowblower, and now it will not start (didn't add stabilizer either - rookie mistake I've learned). What is the best way to drain the tank - use a siphon pump? Thanks for your help.

      Siphoning will most of it out but not all it. Your probably will need to clean the carburetor so you can finish draining the tank at that time.

        Thanks Eugene, I really appreciate your answer. Is this something easy that I can do myself now, or something that I should have a service center do next fall?

          Really depends on your abilities. If you have clean lawn carbs before then it is no different other than hardier to get to.
