ryobi weed eater

This weekend I tried to start up my Ryobi Weed eater and I couldn't get it to turn over. I went to home depot, and a "specialist" there said that the gas/oil combination will go bad after 90 days and that I need to replace it. He also said that it will cause a goo buildup in the gas lines. This is my landlordís equipment, so I'm not sure how old the gas is, but has anyone else had this happen. Any Suggestions??

Did you simply try dumping out the old gas from the trimmer and putting in new gas/oil mix?
Some advice you receive on the internet can be worth exactly what you paid for it - be careful.

sounds like BS to me....I have had the same gas/oil in a certain chain saw for years.........don't use it much, and it fires right up every year.

I would do what the above poster said......then give up on weed eating for the summer.
