Actually pretty easy to drain. Flat blade screwdriver...turn it, watch gas drain 30 seconds, close it.

We might have different opinions what easy is.
Finding a screwdriver on my retirement is hard job.
Jokes aside, turning valve off and running carburetor dry worked for me for decades just fine.

Back years ago I installed a piece of 1/4" tubing from the intake assembly into one of the intake tubes, drilled a hole in the bottom of the 2000 next to the bowl drain tube....
After my 2000 has sat for a while and won't start after a couple of pulls I just squirt starter fluid up that external tube and the 2000 starts after the 1-2nd pull..

I did this to a couple of buds 2000's too... A life saver.

Starter fluid/either can be deadly for an engine. It can literally blow the ring lands right off a piston.

My EU2000i always starts with 1 or 2 pulls if it's been run in the last few days. But if it sits for a month or longer, it's a good 20-30 pulls to get it started. But after all those pulls and finally starting, if I shut it off, it restarts in 1 or 2 pulls.

Anybody else have this problem and been able to fix it?


I used to until I read this procedure
turn on big dial switch (to get fuel into fuel pump).
turn off eco mode
turn on choke
now turn off big dial switch.
brisk pull cord around 5 times. this allows fuel to get from pump to carb)
turn back on big dial switch.
brisk pull cord and it will start pretty easy.
