You need a quart of regular old SAE 5W30 motor oil with detergent.
The engines on these generators are more or less the same as a lawn mower.
Don't forget to service/change the air cleaner when you change the oil, that should keep your generator producing full power.

What can happen with these generators is there is a shield built into them to devert the heat that is produced but it is still released into the surrounding components and causes a plastic rain guard to melt slightly around the edges and the melted plastic fuses to the armature and causes voltage drop through the brushes due to lack of contact. It is a relatively simple fix but it requires a rebuild kit that can be purchased aftermarket through your local generator dealer. It provides instructions for the rebuild but are often times confusing and it is usually cheaper in the long run and less hassel to let the dealer install the rebuild kit for you. If you do decide to attempt this yourself there is an 800 number provided where it can be registered and it will allow you to access schematics online for this rebuild. Hope this helps, good luck!

If you have fire coming out of the carb, then your intake valve is stuck open. Take the head off, and as you turn the engine, tap on the valve with a plastic screwdriver handle to make it go in, then turn it more to push it back out. If you need to put a light coating of oil on it, so be it. Keep doing this until it's freed up, then put it back together.
