In the past week or so I've read several different articles and tutorials where the authors had meant to use the word "lose" and spelled it "loose", and I don't mean Facebook or Instagram posts.  Odd, I guess spell-check wouldn't flag it.

I'll never buy a gas-powered small engine tool again. Had our Ego mower for I think this is year 3 and ran out of battery one time when the teenager didn't put the battery in the charger. Took the battery out of the weed eater and was able to finish. Can mow and listen to ballgames on the headphones without noise cancelling or talk to people without stopping. 

The carburetor thing though is 100% correct. Plus my shoulder is destroyed and pulling a mower cord was the last straw before getting a cortisone shot.

I think I’m leaning that way when the gas one can no longer start. I finally found a can of engine starter fluid @ Wally World. Beats me spilling gas in the carb to get it going.

Yup Seafoam works fantastic. I would have never though about using it in a small engine. Nice tip.

A buddy of mine is doing an internal carbon clean of his pistons on his 83’ Vette. He’s been doing a mixture of that and then acetone with ACDelco top engine cleaner. Did so many treatments since October of last year and the tops look like new. If you can afford to let it sit it will do a nice job.

Because battery powered ones mostly suck. And I don’t have $600 to spend on a decent one that doesn’t mow for more than 40 minutes.
Looked into them this season cause I’m tired of repairing the carburetor bi-seasonally.

Yep.
Kinda like an electric car in many ways.
Except those are subsidized by the government.
Unless you use them for driving around town. Then you might as well just have a golf cart. You can empty the fuel out of the carb so it doesn't sit long and go bad.
Or, we could get rid of the evil ethanol that destroys things like fuel systems. Not to mention the way it pollutes the atmosphere.
Talking about an oxymoron. 

Yup I always drain the fuel and put some Marvelous Mystery Oil and a little dry gas in after a pull or two. Still got to get the snowblower done this week. Saw a product on the shelf @ Wally World that neutralizes ethanol. Got to read more about it. 
 
I remember MMO from my old small block Chevy daze.  There was a time that I had wing nuts on the valve covers and carried spare push rods and valve rockers since I kept bending rods and effing up the rockers.  Also carried spare U - Bolts for the lower A frames on the 1979 C - 30 truck this was all in.  I beat that thing to death.  Stories for another time ...

Seafoam is your friend.  A couple of years ago I stopped runing the tanks dry on both the snowblower and lawnmower and instead poured about half a can of Seafoam in the tanks and then topped them of with gas.  The lawnmower fired up nicely after only a couple of pulls.  Its a 1985 Jacobson that my was my Dad's.

I learned about Seafoam from MTD /TroyBilt, a local company who make my snowblower.  Sucker just plain would not start with fresh gas, shooting ether into the carb.  It has an electric start so turning it over was not a problem.  The helpdesk said it was probably goo from ethanol that plugged the fuel line. Was told to pour straight Seafoam into the tank and it should dissolve any deposits that could be clogging things.  It also is a fuel in itself.  It did do the trick after about only an hour and the puppy finally did fire up and started running.

Good for the car, too.

That ethanol isn't the miracle cure they thought it would be.
It helped the farmers of corn though.
