He knows, but doesn't want one. I don't know why, I sure would.

I will update the end result as it is reported to me by the owner.

He should have been using synthetic!

Warranty is going to cover it according to the owner, but he was told Honda's warranty does not cover carburetors, but that doesn't appear to be his problem.

I will report back as soon as I hear the results. The dealer will be looking at the generator this week.

Thumbs up

The first part of this thread made me smile. 23-ish hrs a day, every day! That's brutal.
Then, it dies a couple of months later!
But wait, it's covered!
You just can't make this stuff up.

Impressive for sure. What size tank is on the unit that allows it run for ~23hr on a tank?

He fills is when it runs out during the day and then leaves it full about 6:00pm for an all night run to empty. He is back early early in the morning to refill and start another day.

No word yet on what is wrong with it. He has another one that he is using while the dead one is in the shop.
