Gosh - - the number of times folks will run out of fuel and have to chase around getting running again is astounding.

Nobody aims to do that; it just happens sometimes.

The fuel gauge on my BX will read "F" for the longest time, then will hit half right off.....it's really about a quarter at that point.

I've gotten so as soon as the needle comes off "F," She gets filled again.

Oh wait....that happened while mowing Friday night.... :oops:

I better get on the stick myself!

I found out the hard way Friday that mine is out of fuel when the gauge reads 1/2. Luckily it started to sputter and I shut it off right away. Put in 5 gallons and it filled up to the top and started up and ran fine.
Odd that it is supposed to hold 7 gallons. New I should have topped it off earlier!
