Honda EU2200i - Maintenance Questions
Please excuse a couple of ignorant questions from a first-time generator owner.
The EU2200i manual says for storage, drain the carburetor float bowl by loosening the carburetor drain screw, then unplug the spark plug, turn it on, and pull the starter cord 3 to 4 times.
When I loosen the screw, no fuel comes out. Then when I pull the starter cord, fuel comes out every time I pull it, 5 or 6 times. Is the fuel supposed to stop eventually?
Second question: The manual says to clean the air filter every 50 hours. It's not dusty here, and a paper towel rubbed lightly on the filter comes away a little oily but clean. How important is it to clean the filter?
Thanks for any help.
