I have always used this in petrol for my generator so it doesn't go stale. Fuel Fit® Fuel Treatment Briggs & Stratton

We bought a new lawn mower a few months ago and its never been a good starter if you stop the engine, then start it a few secs or min later. So I tried some petrol that I had mixed with the stablilizer and now it seems to be starting perfectly... Odd hey?

Not odd just a fact of life with the mystery gas we have to put up with. Just noticed the English Flag, do you have the mandatory 10% ethanol added to gasoline?

No idea, I just know its unleaded petrol from the petrol station:D... But what else would cause a engine not to start after a few mins of stopping, as it would start straight away if it was left a good 5-10mins after stopping the engine.

Also, try using non-oxygenated gasoline. The ethenyol from "corn gas" leaves deposits in the fuel system that causes hard starting.
