We use this model of generator often for both bbq activities and more so in our custom car business. We have learned something about them that I would like to pass on. We feel it is essential that the carb be run dry before transporting these units. We have determined that not doing so gives potential to the float bobbing up and down and allowing the gas from the tank through the carb to go into the crankcase. This can result in a wrong assessment of the oil level or in our case the generator quitting because of a low oil shutoff situation. Easy enough to shut off the gas and let the generator stop itself when it runs out of fuel.
