before storing in any enclosure.

If possible, store your snow thrower indoors and cover
it to protect it from dust and dirt.

cover that does not retain moisture. Do not use plastic.
Plastic cannot breathe, which allows condensation to
form and will cause your snow thrower to rust.
IMPORTANT: It is important to prevent gum deposits from
forming in essential fuel system parts such as carburetor,
fuel hose, or tank during storage. Also, alcohol blended
fuels (called gasohol or using ethanol or methanol) can
attract moisture which leads to separation and formation
of acids during storage. Acidic gas can damage the fuel
system of an engine while in storage.
IMPORTANT: Never cover snow thrower while engine/ex-
haust area is still warm.
