Thanks to all for great feedback, particularly Phoenix for in depth details and to Condoluminum for tip on crossing on ferry into Newfoundland with empty gas cans.

To be fair, mine had warnings all over the place about this fact - in the box, on the generator, and in the manuals. It would have been hard to miss them. Now if the dealer removed them and claimed it was ready to go, then I'd be irritated...

The safest bet is to check the oil level. Should be doing that anyway.

A Honda EU2000i generator will not start if the oil is low. It has an internal low oil level sensor that prevents it. It's well described in the Owners Manual.
