Thank you for your question.

I will be happy to assist you with removing the fuel. First, move the snow blower to a well-ventilated area. Then remove the top of the snow blower. The image below shows how to remove the top cover. Once the cover is removed, follow the fuel line from the tank to the carburetor. Loosen the hose clamp at the carburetor and remove the hose. You need to have a container ready so you can put the end of the hose into. After the tank is drained, reconnect the hose and tighten the clamp. When ready to fill the tank, use fresh fuel and quality fuel mix.

I hope this is helpful. If you need further assistance on the snow blower, please reply below with more details.
