I have a Toro Recycler about 9 or 10 years old. I've changed the oil in it maybe 5 times but haven't maintained it as well as I probably should. Last oil change and new spark plug was spring 2016. I...

That's what I intend to do. I just wanted to know, out of curiousity, WHY code requires a GFi outlet even if the only thing plugged into it is also GFI. And instead of a straight answer (which is...
