Mixing the fuel
The Generator is powered by a two-stroke, air-cooled engineand requires a fuel mixture of gasoline and 2-cycle fuel lubricant.
NOTE: Always mix two-cycle engine lubricant likeHomelite's Exact Mix Semi Synthetic Lubricant with gasoline before fueling theunit. Running the Generator ongasoline alone will ruin the engine.
NOTE: Recommend you use ONLY Homelite or G-oil® inyour product.( Or any 2 cycle motor oil in this is not available)
Use a mixture of 50 parts unleaded regular gasoline and 1part two-stroke engine lubricant (50:1). Use branded 87 octane (R+M+2) unleadedgasoline or gasohol (maximum 10% ethyl alcohol, or 15% MTBE, no methylalcohol.)
NOTE: Always mix lubricant and gas in the properproportions: 2.6 ounces of lubricant to one gallon of unleaded gasoline. To mix the lubricant and fuel together for use: 1. Pour 1/2 gallon of gasoline into a clean gas canor other container approved for fuel storage. Do not mix the fuel and lubricantdirectly in the Generato's fuel tank. 2. Add 2.6 ounces of two-cycle engine lubricant tothe gasoline mixture. 3. Add the remaining 1/2 gallon of gasoline. 4. Close the container holding the gas/lubricantmix and swirl the can to blend contents together. NOTE: Do not mix more than you will use in a month,and shake the container to blend thoroughly before each use. Using an old fuelmixture can cause starting difficulty or damage. DO NOT USE E85 FUEL. IT WILL VOID YOUR WARRANTY. NOTE: Fuel system damage or performance problems resultingfrom the use of an oxygenated fuel containing more than the percentages ofoxygenates stated previously are not covered under warranty. Ethanol. Gasoline containing up to 10% ethanol by volume(commonly referred to as E10) or 15% ethanol by volume (commonly referred to asE15) are acceptable. E85 is not. Whenadding fuel to the Generator, make sure the unit is sitting on level ground andthat the engine is not hot. Fuelonly with recommended 50:1 mixture of gasoline and lubricant as described in Mixingthe Fuel. Toadd fuel to the Generator: 1. Cleanarea around fuel tank cap, if necessary. 2. Removethe fuel tank cap. 3. Inserta clean funnel into the fuel tank. 4. Slowlypour gasoline/lubricant mixture into fuel tank.
