Never had that problem with mine. The Ring Free is supposed to be some good stuff. I have heard that after running it thru a tank of gas, you need to change the oil because of all the crap that gets broke loose in the motor. I run a little Startron or Seafoam in my gas every second or third tank to keep things clean. Also heard that Marvel Mystery Oil is good to keep it cleaned out.

Never run out of traction, ideas, and real estate at the same time.
