Extend gen/inverter run time

Just purchased a new Champion 3400 watt generator/inverter and while doing some research I stumbled across this video, the products or kits he has is for Honda, Yamaha, Champion and others. Now apparently you can purchase the kit from this gentleman...but being familiar with all the parts he is using I can pretty much buy them all for next to nothing.
Check it out you can go from a 7.5 hour run time to almost and in most cases over to a 20-24 hour run time.

Actually when I bought my new Boliy gen it came equipped to add 6 gal fuel tank to extend run time to 20 plus hrs. Matter of fact it ran 24 before I filled and still had fuel left. Later RJD

I have a champion 3100 and saw that website as well, but the $250 price tag turned me away. Could you post your parts list. Later RJD

I prefer to run my 3100 champion than my onan 5k that will run forever. just for the fact I have to refuel it .it gives me a chance to check oil and spark arrestor for carbon build up.

Yes, almost new account. Purchased new toy hauler last month 26rr and have 6 nights and 7 days in it. Found that my old Honda generator was not going to cut the mustard. After extensive research I found the above video and settled on the Champion Gen/Inv 3400 watt.
After watching the video a dozen times not including the back tracking and slow motioning the following is what I believe he used and what I plan on using.


20pcs Nylon Platic White Fuel Hose Cable Wire Clamps Clips For 11.4-12.4mm OD


Fuel Pump/ Filter For Honda 808656 2439316S 49040-7001 16700-Z0J-003


1/4" Fuel T white polyurethane fuel barb Tee motorcycle automotive gas line


HONDA male gas fuel fitting boat motor marine quick connect line threaded


Fuel Line and Primer Line T Fittings Sports Parts 07-279


Brass Hose Fitting, Connector, 5/16" Barb x 1/4" Female NPT End - FF45


Standard Motor Products V247 PCV Valve


All of the above can be purchased through “Amazon” for a hair over 50 bucks, just cut and paste each item into the search block. Yes I know plastic is spelled wrong but that is how it is on Amazon.


I have watched the video about a dozen times now pay attention to the way the PCV is set up!!! From right to left it is a;


1) Short piece of hose


2) “T” fitting


3) Short piece of hose


4) PCV


The fuel line (I’m thinking about a 5 foot piece should be more than enough) can be purchased at any auto parts store along with the Teflon tape.


I make no guaranty that these are the exact parts he uses in the video, however; my experience tells me I am almost 90 percent sure I am right and this is what I will be using.
A little about me, retired Navy 20+ years, CSX mechanical engineer 10 years, Florida State College at Jacksonville Counselor 7 years and Civil Service Hydraulic/Pneumatic engine repair presently.
