I believe you have a carburetor engine, and you need to adjust your idle, make a richer air/fuel mix. Your Idle mix is too lean, so you can't start it. When you get it richer, you might need to adjust a throttle. If you have only 1 screw on a carburetor, it'll be a throttle adjustment for idle. Try to start it warm with opened choke and a bit of a ...

Turn the choke ON to start a cold engine. Once it is running, set it to PARTIAL until the engine is warm. Once the engine has been running a few minutes, set the choke to OFF. Choke helps the engine run rich. This is necessary when the engine is cold. The engine will start easiest with the choke on. The engine will run best when warm with the choke off.

Once it is running, set it to PARTIAL (diagonal) until the engine is warm. Once the engine has been running a few minutes, set it to OFF. Choke helps the ...

It absolutely does use more fuel. What the choke does is creates a restriction in the carburetor, which in turn creates a higher vacuum so the engine will draw more fuel when it is cold. This is called fuel enrichment. It allows the engine to warm up and keep running, but at the expense of using more fuel to make it happen. When leaving the choke on for a ...
