Worked on the gens today, still waiting on some parts. I went ahead and mocked up the tee and added a fuel filter.

The factory fuel line is 3/16", or 5mm since it is made in China. I'm using 1/4" fuel line to the tee from external tank, and tee to carb. I will replace the worm hose clamps with pinch(ear) clamps on final fit.

The fuel filter is a 3/16" from my Arctic Cat ATV. I ordered it for the ATV and was going to replace it today and decided to use in on the gen. Got to order two more now.

I tested the gen under heavy load to test the flow of filter and it works great. It will flow enough fuel for the 400cc Arctic Cat, it's over kill for the 80cc gen engine.

More to come when parts arrive......

Finished the extended run setup today and tested. Everything works great! I parked the RV in the driveway and turned on the AC. I ran it for a little over a hour and worked flawlessly.


It was raining outside so I set the gens and tank in the garage so I can monitor without getting wet. The quick disconnects are great. They stop the flow of fuel when disconnected.

The real test will be this coming weekend when we will dry camp Friday through Sunday. I will report back when I get a couple of days of running with the tank.

PS....Disregard the messy garage. The kids wanted to play outside and it was raining so we played in the garage. I'm usually a neat freak with garage organization because I hate searching 15 minutes for a tool that I only use for two minutes!

Update.....

This past weekend we dry camped Friday through Sunday. We were at a Truck Rally so running gens 24 hrs was not a problem. Got camp set up and started gens at 11:00am Friday morning and didn't shut them down till Sunday around noon.

Worked flawlessly! I'm guessing the gens used 6-8 gallons of gas.

Sorry for sideways pic. I need to remember if I take a pic for the forum I need to hold my cell horizontal.
