And while I'm griping....

The new dispensing caps on gas cans these days are a PITA, especially trying to fill up the XLRs tank.

Only reason Y I don't want to fill mine on a regular basis is I don't want old gas sitting in the tank for too long and gum up the genny...but it would be at least nice to be able to fill it up! Do you got a pic if that outer plastic hose your talking about?

I'll take a picture next time at the pump -- I guess I use mine too much to worry about bad gas 😛

I'd just put some stabilizer in tank when you fill it - and run it once a month

Stabilizer won't stop the gas from gumming (unless you're using Startron or something similar.)

Two words: ethanol free.

Yep.. We use marine grade Stabil in our tank. No issues. I try to get by storage every month and run it for 30 minutes. We get to camp year round and I use the generator while prepping at the house, so ours sitting around hasn't been much of an issue.

I use the fuel station for mowers etc, too.

Someone on the forum had an issue that was not getting 30 gals in the tank... Forget why... Anyone? OG maybe you are only getting 20 in the tank at the pump??

Stabil keeps my mower gas good through the long hard Florida Winter(tongue in cheek).

I pumped it all out one time filling up my brothers truck. I can hold 30 in the tank. I guess I am an anomaly with the generator fuel line. Oh well..

Here's another topic.. Do you guys dump the first cup or two of fuel coming out of the hose? I always try to drain it back before putting the hose up, but inevitably the gas when I go to pump for the first second or two is dark grey from the inside of the hose.
