Same here.My tiller did the same thing,ended up giving it away.My new Honda 4stroke will never see ethanol.Last year bought a new Stihl blower as my older one was doing the same as yours,it too will never see ethanol.

The only thing I have left to replace is my mower.Right now it runs but I have start it with starter fluid every time.
