Failing to exercise reasonable care when operating a snowmobile can result in liability for any collisions that result. Snowmobile operators may be at fault in a collision for any number of reasons including but not limited to poor skill and intoxication. Reasonable snowmobile riders would not travel in crowded areas if they were unfamiliar with the machine operate the vehicle while under the influence of alcohol or drugs or travel at excessively high speeds. If the owner of the snowmobile is different from the person driving it the owner may also be liable for damages.
Gasoline has highly volatile components that tend to evaporate over time. The less volatile components in the fuel cause the gasoline to burn less effectively. The result is poor engine performance. In other words your engine may still start and run but it probably wont run as well. Not only will the gasoline degrade over time but when a snowmobile sits for long periods of time without a protective snowmobile cover water and condensation can enter the gas tank. Water of course does not work too well as a fuel in the internal combustion engine of a snowmobile.
If you participate in the sort of snowmobiling you probably know that you need to take safety precautions like driving sober watching for other snow sport enthusiast watching for cars when you cross roads and wearing reflective gear and a helmet. And if you participate in another winter sport such as skiing or snowshoeing you need to be aware of snowmobilers in your proximity and wear reflective gear so that they can yield to you. But sometimes no matter how careful you are accidents do occur-often because of other negligent snowmobilers but sometimes too because of a default in the construction of your snowmobile or because of negligence on part of the land owner.
Check out the porcelain part of the spark plug. Does it appear to have changed color? The white porcelain is the insulator of the spark plug. If the porcelain has turned beige or a light tan color then it is still in good working order. If the spark plug is very white you could have an air leak. If it has changed to other colors then you have a problem with the engine. Is there plenty of coolant? If the coolant levels are low put fresh coolant into the snowmobile following the owners manual guidelines.A recommended coolant/antifreeze is ethylene glycol (the green kind) to resist freezing.
