Storing (storage) of Honda Gen. winter months...
I am deciding the best way to store my Honda 2000 generator during the winter months. The manual says to empty main tank, and drain the carborator thing, as well as change the oil.
I've only used the gen. for about 12-14 hours since I've had it, so I think I will forgo the oil change.
I was wondering if it is OK to leave the gas tank completely filled, then store it, and every few weeks let it run for 15 minutes to keep fresh gas in the carb. Re-top off gas.
This would not only make life easier, but I would have an emergency source of a small amount AC, in the event of world Jihad.
The Honda will be kept in my heated basement, with the cap vent OFF, and safely away from any kind of flame.
If anyone has any thoughts or expert opinions, please let me know.
Sometimes I wish I were living in the stone age. Then I would know I'm the smartest person in the world.
