A couple things you can do here...

1) Drain the tank, blow it dry using compressed air, and get all the rust out that you can. Use an acid wash / rinse to help remove the rest of the rust. Coat the tank inside with a tank sealer like that from kbs-coatings or caswell.

2) Have a metal shop make you a new tank that will approximate the old one.

3) Install a fuel filter that will catch the rust particles (left over after blowing it out) and be done with it

4) Use an external fuel tank (marine comes to mind) instead of onboard fuel tank.

1330se it is brand new not getting fuel to motor will run on either


There may be a filter on the fuel pickup line inside the fuel tank that has clogged due to old fuel being left in the tank. Look inside the tank - it probably looks like rust - you need to change that. Any lawn mower repair shop should have a filter that works and could change it for you. Note - run the blower until it runs out of fuel before storage to avoid problems like this - same rule for lawnmowers, weed wackers, etc.

Eu1000i runs and cuts off.....pump is good


If you haven't had it started for a while and have left gas in it, you probably have old/bad gasoline. Drain it and put new gas in. It may have clogged the fuel filter with rust and sediment from the old gas. Next time, put "Sta-bil" in it when you store it for the season, it will stabilize your gas.

My powermate 5000 with subaru engine will run anywhere from 30-60 minutes and shut down. One light pull to the pull start and it runs great for another 30-60 minutes. Never a problem to start it back up...


There is debri or dirt in gas tank and eventually it gets sucked up and clogs the screen filter on the end of gas line. Drain gas tank and flush out a few times. let dry and put new gas in it. check your gas can, if it is metal, it may have rust in the bottom of it and it goes in the gas tank and clogs screen, make sure you have a clean gas can that you use to fill the generator.

My 1970 Honda CT70 only runs when the gas in is supplied from the reserve gasoline supply from the gas tank. The gas tank is full. How do I fix?


It sounds like the normal gas supply tube is stopped up. You could remove the gas valve from the tank and clean it, or you could just leave the setting on reserve all the time. If you are hesitant about removing the valve you could try applying air pressure to the gas supply line to blow the obstruction into the tank, but removing the valve is best. If you still have problems let me know and I will look at my old CT70 for more ideas. The way the valve works is that it has two lnlets, one at the very bottom of the tank for the reserve setting and the other a little higher up, so that it will quit taking in gas while there is still some left while on that setting. A problem like yours may indicate that you have rust or sediment in your tank.

I need to remove the gas tank from a honda generator eu3000is.


I have a ems 4500 honda, the gas tank looks like the upper bar needs to be removed to get the gas tank off, it does. Follow the
top bar down on each of the corners. Where the top bar meets with the bar below the gas tank, you will find a bolt in each of the tubes. Take these screws out, use a hammer to tap the top bar upward lightly at each corner. You should see the tubing sliding up out of the bottom tubes.
