Honda Generators

I am currently in Green Creek Campground, in Toiyabe National Forest, Ca. Just outside Bridgeport, at an elevation of 8,000 feet.

My generators are running rich, and in fact one will run for a few minutes and then shuts down. I have read the owner's manual and it says that if you are going to be at elevation you need to have the carburetor adjusted by a Honda Dealer.

Does anyone know how to this and can you post pictures? Much appreciated as otherwise I will be driving a few hundred miles to get this done.

I have run my 2 Honda 2000's, for extended periods, at elevations higher than that with no trouble. Are you sure the vents on the fuel caps are open?

There is a jet kit for high elevations....no adjustment I am aware of, just jets.

Make sure you have the choke in the right position. Same symptom. I made that mistake our first trip out this spring and was convinced there was a problem with the gen until I got home and fired it up again. I then realized I was reading the diagram backwards. Been using them for over 2 yrs so not sure why I mixed it that time.

I had a similar issue on my 2000 and it turned out it was the little vent on the gas cap had gotten closed while moving the unit.

The problem is jets, and I need to drive over fifty miles one way to get them replaced. I know about the the other suggestions made here (caps, air filter etc. ) and in fact pulled the air filters before I posted.

Jets. Couldn't just have a damn screw could they?

I have three different jets for my honda 2000. I change them regularly as I camp at a wide range of altitudes. Two nuts pull off the carburetor and the jet screws into the bottom of the post under the bowl. Takes about 10 minutes. I carry three sizes: 0-5000', 4-7000', and 7000'+. I googled it where you can you tube the change.

My Honda has run many hours with stock jets over 8000 feet.
High altitude jets will improve fuel economy.
There is a problem with your generator, most likely a crudded up carburetor. There are small jets inside and unless fuel is run out of the carb and the float bowl drained (there is a screw on the bottom of the bowl) when the generator is stored, the carb will crud up if it is stored for a while.
