Re: Do you store your generator full or empty?
I keep mine full with treated gas. Every 6 months I drain the gas, put it in my truck and refill with new treated fuel and run it for 15 minutes or so under load.
I put a 'T' in the fuel line so it's easy to drain, before that I had to keep removing the fuel line from the tank, no big deal but I was afaid I'd eventually bust the fitting.
I'm opposite of most people as far as draining the carb, I keep it full with the tank valve closed. I have the theory, maybe unfounded, that the constant drying/wetting of the gaskets etc will eventually cause a leak, it's worked for me so far....Mike
