We had a low of 13 this morning.
The Mule was a little slow on the start but ran good. Anyhow, drove around for about 20 minutes and parked it.
Went to start feeding several hours later and started up and i let it idle for about 2 minutes and it died and wouldn't restart. Pulled the fuel line off and no fuel at the carburetor.. The fuel pump is pulse type. A line runs from the crankcase to the pump. Found out right where the fuel line hooks to the pump it had iced up since when running it always gets a bit of condensation in the tube. Guess it was enough to block the air pulse. Got some rubbing alcohol. And melted it and put the line back on and she fired up.

Might want to check that if any of your power equipment uses a pulse fuel pump and you need to use it over the next few days.

Shows you are a good fellow to have around, since you were able to diagnose the problem and fix it. Not everyone could have done that.
