Well with it not being a true honda I guess the quality wont be as good, but I try to look after it as best that I can. I did try switching off the petrol tap and letting it run till the carburetor was empty, but it jumped and spluttered, so I haven't done that again since, but it still started first touch the next time even tho the carburetor was empty.
In the next week or so I am going to get my mate to help me change the oil ready for the winter as the oil that I have been using isn't great for low temps(bog standard SAE30 oil 4c-30c temps) and I have notice it takes longer to start as the temps drop. So Im going to change it for 10w40 oil, then that should be good all year round and might improve the starting when its cold aswel? The temps dont rarely drop much below -10c during the winter in the United Kingdom
I can get a conversion kit to make the generator run from both petrol and propane, but I havent properly used the generator yet, and I dont want to spend money on it, if its not fit for the job. I bought it for emergency power for when I have powercuts, but since buying the generator in feb-april time of this year, I havent had any powercuts. Typical!!!
