Change the oil and the filter and clean the air filter. Drain your fuel tank or add a fuel stabilizer to prevent clogging of the carburetor by the old fuel. After adding stabilizer, run the mower for a few minutes to distribute the stabilizer throughout the engine. Lastly, clean or replace your spark plug. A little care now will insure your mower is ready to go when the grass starts growing again in the spring.
