Mine prolly did not need to be removed again. it would not start and after i drained the gas i knew why... The gas was almost brown in color and smelled really bad. It was bad gas ... So after the new gas new plug and clean carb it ran as good as new...


How old was your fuel to begin with?

My Honda is going on 5 years and still starts and runs great. I exercise periodically through the year, and retop it off with fresh fuel. I don't always put in Sta-bil during the summer months, but do in the fall where I use it the least. I always drain the fuel bowl after I use it and plan to put it away for more than a week. The fuel bowl is vented and will evaporate the fuel. The fuel tank can be sealed thus not as much of a worry of evap or fuel going bad.

My EU2000 started running rough after about 500 ours of use. Would only happen when using the ECO mode and running for several hours or if it was very cold outside. Before this last trip I started using Seafoam cleaner in every tank. This last trip I ran it several nights at 6F and no more rough running. Running in ECO mode just powering the converter it will run a bit more than 12 hours.

I believe that there is a fuel filter inside the fuel tank as well as the tubular screen in the filler neck. I'd like too change the inside one but haven't been able to figure out where it is. Anyone ever changed it?

I am quite sure the screen inside the filler neck is the only filtering.

I guess I'm not the only one that is impressed with Seafoam. It's the only product I have ever seen that really makes a difference.

Great job! I'm keeping this URL.

I always drain the tank and carb (never leave fuel in it), but, you never know.

Great write up. THIS SHOULD BE A STICKY SOMEWHERE!!!

I found this while I was searching for an old post where somebody had described the process of cleaning out the carb and jets. This is so much better. Heck with words, I love the pictures.

Thanks!

Whether you use Stabil or Seafoam, drain it or not, exercise it or not, tear it apart this way or that, this is an excellant write up.

Thank you AISURFFISH for the time and effort to write and post this article. I would rather read stuff like this then SWD/DWD bashing--er,I mean debates.[emoticon]

Great write up, and photos too.
just got done doing this to mine as well, there is only one thing I can add is before re-assembly, remember to clean and oil the foam air filter.
And always drain the carb bowl after use, this will eliminate many problems with this generator
