I have had at least 1 and most of the time 2 Honda EU2000I generators for most of 20 years and they are so dependable they make me feel invincible in knowing I have a solid game plan for power outages. I have I guess always used them in warm weather camping, boating and for outdoor projects. Today I went to my small town chiropractor appointment and his water was froze up out at the meter so I said I got this for you. Ran back home and spent the next 30 minutes fighting to get either of my Hondas to run. They always have non eth farm gas in them, never anything else. Fuel is fresh, This seems to just be the cold weather. They were in my unheated but attached garage so not really all that cold, I'd guess 40 degrees initially and dropping to 10 outdoors as I moved them outside one at a time to test fire before leaving with one on the back of my truck. I finally got one of them to start just before I took a 9mm to both. This particular set of generators are about 2 years old and have been flawless up until now with estimated 25 hours of run time. Some individual and some in tandem. This was very aggravating since I have always put my trust in them without fail. I have had both outside all afternoon at 15 degrees and now 10 again and 1 will still not even try to start, the one that did finally take off this morning will now barely start after after 15 or more pulls being in the cold all day. They were left outside to test and try and figure out what is going on. If I have to store these in a warmer box all their life to make them think it is summer I see no value in having them as a backup in winter. I am just amazed since I guess I have fortunately never needed one in cold weather. I got to figure something out here since I am getting older and the shoulders are not what they used to be, only got so much pulling on that rope in me these days. Please help. What is the deal with these generators not starting when it is cold ???? is there a trick. Thanks in advance for you thoughts.
