Annuit is on a distinguished road
Default Fuel filter

Diagnostic using tool from local auto parts store etc... bring up codes that majority of the time are issues resulting from the main issue... good for trouble shooting starting point really.. Curious on something and try and guess this scenario out... Forgot to get gas night before or just did not feel like stopoing for gas the day before for whatever reason but not a big deal gas station right down the road and youll get it in the morning next morning go to start but it wont and acts like its out if gas and realize it is being starved of gas cause your driveway is slightly downhil and only gas you had at the house was gas with 2 cycle mix in it? And ever sense then had this issue and just thinking it can't be that cause you've done it before in the past? LoL (personal story) change the fuel filter! (Clean throttle body cam sensor etc.. next available opportunity also for safe measure) ended up being my problem and maybe it helps... good luck
