Disagree. My two 11 year old Honda EU2000is have never been drained, or run out of fuel. I just use Stabil. Easy.

I drain the bowl using the set screw. It takes just a second.

When you turn your Honda EU2000is generator off, it does turn the fuel off. It just doesn't run the carb dry.

You disagreed to my statement that you need to have a fuel shut off valve. Your generators do have one.

I am guessing using a little Seafoam is cheaper than paying $24 for a gallon of ethanol free gas ???

Yes, there is a fuel flow shutoff that is tied to the ignition shutoff. Still don't know what your statement has to do with the discussion of whether to run the carb dry of fuel or not.

LOL....look at my post #119 that you disagreed with. I said nothing about running carb dry.

Guess I'm still trying to figure out why you needed to inform us that there is a fuel shutoff valve. You could of said they have a carry handle or that martians you have seen are green, and been just as informative. I (incorrectly) assumed you were talking about a fuel shutoff in relation to the drain the carb discussion.

Guess you were just sharing your Google knowledge to share. Thanks!
