The fuel injectors on the passenger side of the engine must not be getting enough fuel or fuel pressure. That side of the engine runs dead lean and therefore very hot.

Does removing a muffler help fuel mileage in a cummons 2005?

Having a free flow muffler will help improve fuel economy. In most mufflers on the market the air flow is by having the exhaust air take two 180 degree turns u turns. This restricts the airflow and causes immense back pressure. Having a straight through airflow muffler will improve mileage which is just like removing a muffler. By removing a muffler there is reduction in weight and improvement in back pressure. You may be cited for driving without a muffler, as it is required for noise control and pollution control.

What causes a 16.5 hp Briggs and Stratton MTD mower backfire every time it is shut off after mowing the yard?

possible causeThe muffler is extremely hot after mowing, when the ignition is turned off, the fuel air mixture continues to be drawn into the engine through the carburetor and when the engine comes to a complete stop the fuel air mixture is now stalled and what is in the muffler is ignited by the header pipe, muffler or exhaust valve. The loud bang is the unmuffled explosion of the air fuel mixture.
