Following my input of Ctrl-E the engine starts as expected. However the moment I attempt to increase the throttle, the engine promptly dies. I've run a maintenance check including the Compression test and all is reported as functioning perfectly.
What's the matter?
Thank you.

Have you checked your mixture and fuel selector?
