    One last item to check - the vent in the fuel cap - if the gen sucks a vacuum it will die after a few minutes or worse.

    I have to admit I didn't read the entire post .
    That being said I have an lp 5500 Onan therefore I don't worry about remembering to run the generator.
    I wonder if anyone with the the gas generators have considered using Marine grade fuel ?
    It doesn't have the issues that gas with ethanol has. Better performance and last alot longer without breaking the bank.

    We run 100% non ethanol gas in ALL our toys and small engines - no fuel related problems in anything! YEA!
