A carburetor assembly from an electric generator is taken apart by a mechanic. If left to set in engines for long periods of time, ethanol-added gasoline can corrode parts of the engine causing seals to deteriorate and fuel injector jets to become clogged. Since generators are mainly used in case of emergency, many owners won't discover they have an issue with ethanol-added gasoline until they might be depending on the device. David Albers/Staff
