"What was the $91 charge for? Rebuilt carburettor/fuel lines?"
Good question, "cleaning out the carb" was the reply I received.
I too had a Craftsman with a Briggs & Stratton that ran like nothing I had ever owned before. Strongest engine you can imagine. I live in a very corrosive environment (Fla. East Coast 3 blocks off the Ocean) and after about 9 years the Craftsman deck just rusted to the point of unusuable. Got the Toro at what was then a really good price as a replacement.
Well, we all make less than great purchases on occasion. Hopefully the Honda will make up for the Toro in service life.
One good thing I suppose, as just about ALL gas here has ethanol content, the Honda Owner's Manual says it is permissible to use fuel with <10% ethanol. I'll refrain from using ethanol gas whenever possible but it is good to know at least Honda acknowledges it's out there and has engineered its product to compensate for less than optimum fuel.
