Is there a way to do this to JUST the generator, or do you have to add it to the main gas tank?

You can mix up a gas can full, pull the fuel line where it leave the generator and goes to the main gas tank, then pull from the gas can. Might need to get an extra piece of line. I have done that in the past when trouble shooting on an RV. I actually had a 2 gallon metal gas can with a petcock and hose fitting on it. I would set it up on a table for gravity feed.

gen problems

Ethanol free gas, or as it is called here in Michigan recreation fuel, is almost a must for 2 cycle engines. For properly equiped 4 cycle engines it is not necessary as long as it does not sit for long. Ethonal with draw moisture. I do use the sta-bil blue or marine additive in all my power equipment and my motor home, a ford v10, because it does sit at times for 5 or 6 weeks.
Exercising the gen. is partly for the engine and partly for the wiring and insullation of the generator especially in humid areas.
