Per the owner’s manual, we recommend that the unit be started at least once every 30 days and be allowed to run at least 30 minutes; we recommend applying a load during the monthly run time to exercise both the engine and the alternator. During the time between monthly uses, fuel can be left in the tank with use of a fuel stabilizer, but the carburetor should still be run dry every time the unit is stopped. If the unit cannot be run monthly, and will be stored for 30 days or longer, the carburetor should be run dry, and the fuel tank be emptied. This will help to prevent gum deposits from forming in essential fuel system parts. Further instructions on proper storage will be located in the owner’s manual under Long Term Storage.
