    shouldnt have water in gas although i havent checked it. Left it in rain many times cause i clean parkinglots after work. Never done this before. First it fell over and got water in motor though. It wont fire on ETHER is what i cant figure out or fresh gas in cylinder. May be the simple fix is to drain out gas in tank.?!
