Why do I have to use the choke on my Honda XR125 2004, every morning wheat her summer OR winter?


because as your honda sits over night the gas in the line runs back to the tank. and using the choke helps to suck the gas to the combustian chamber

Car has been sitting Need to run.


The old gas will cause hard starting for sure as it is 15 years old but if you don't have very much in the tank you can mix in some new gas.

EVERYTIME 2004 TAHOE GETS LOW ON FUEL (NOT EMPTY, BUT AROUND 30 MILES LEFT...BEFORE ANY INDICATOR LIGHT COMES ON) IT WONT START AGAIN. IT WILL SIT OVER NIGHT AND WE WONT BE ABLE TO START IT....


Sounds like you have either a bad fuel pump or a leak in the line somewhere. With a leak in the line it will take a long time for the gas to get up toward the engine. When it sits over night the gas line empties back into the tank and the process starts all over again

Hard start in the morning


if you have had a tune up then it is the fuel pump or the injectors loosing pressure buy 2 cans of gumout injector cleaner and put in the gas tank with a little gas so you have a half a tank drive 10 miles and let sit over night then drive till you need gas if that don't fix it then one or the other needs replaced

If it was mine I would get as much of the old fuel out of the tank as I could.(syphon or look at tank for a drain plug)Change the fuel filter.Fill it with fresh fuel.Add a bottle of (Red color) STP fuel treatment.This will help remove condensation form the tank.Also check the condition of the air filter and install a fresh set of spark plugs,properly gaped.
The octaine in you old gas gets weak. Its not good to let it sit for so long.
I hope this helps you.

Have you looked at the gas or gas tank. It could be full of water. Your specific pump could be sitting up high where the gas water line settles after a period of time. Try some dry gas and run the tank out.

Hard to start


U are right about the gas draining back to the tank, the electric fuel pump in the fuel tank has a check valve built into it to prevent drain back, the system should always have pressure, to check this u will need to hook up a fuel press test guage at the test valve on the top of the eng near the injectors, run the engine and shut it down, the pressure should not drop more than 5 PSI overnight.
