8:00 am starting genset for the first time after it sitting.
Pull rope repeatedly, turn key. Everything cranks and spins but it won't start! How old is this gas? Maybe I need a fresh tank. Is it bad gas or gummed carb? Did I use Stabil?
Never had any starting issues with LP....and the beat goes on.


If the gas generators are periodically exercised, no problem at 8:30 am.

I have been carrying 2 Honda EU2000i generators plus an extended run gas tank, plus 4 2.5 gal gas cans, for a decade and a half.

The only problem I've found is the generators are getting heavier as I get older.

A little story. In 2014, we were visiting Hoover Dam during our cross country RV trip. I had to go through a checkpoint before parking in the parking deck. Had to lift up the tonneau cover to show what was in the bed of the truck. I had all kinds of emergency equipment, like an air compressor, plus 2 generators and 16 gallons of gas. No problem for the inspector. I was then allowed to park in the parking deck.
