When fuel evaporates it leaves some nasty reside behind. It can be even worse with pre-mix fuel. That can clog or plug little passage ways in the carb. Then they don't function properly. What they are saying is in the future get the gas out of the carb. So hopefully in the future the carb will not be why it doesn't start or run right.

I don't mind it at all. Started rebuilding Holly carbs in highschool and plenty of ATV / motorcycle carbs over the years. Kind of therapeutic. I am glad working on stuff isn't really my job. It lets me do stuff like this and actually enjoy it.
