Sea foam is a fuel additive that has been around for years. Walmart or Amazon carry it. Have used it on outboard motors where fuel may not get cycled as often as desireable. It is 100% petroleum product.

I use the same oil as in the engine Mobil 1 0w30.

The genny needs to be run on a regular basis. According to Onan, 2 hours under a load each month if not in use.

I would careful about pouring in additives since in the Greyhawk, the genny uses the same tank as the engine. Also if sitting for awhile, more than 2 weeks, use a fuel stabilizer for both the engine and genny.

I'm pulling a TH with an onboard Onan 5500, and the TH has 2 x 27gal gas tanks, one for the genny and one for the toys.

The TV is a 2013 F450. I normally run the Delo 400 whick works great year round in AK. But going way south for the summer and struggling with a good oil for the Hot weather and 18k load.
