The good news is that replacing a fuel pump is a relatively straightforward job. . They also offer the best resistance to corrosion and damage, as after-market units often cut corners on corrosion resistance. Looks to be the ticket for old gas, ethanol fuel, etc. Eventually, when the pump fails, it will leave you stranded.
The generator also benefits from having Avgas in it when stored. I have a generator with fixed jets in the carb and it runs lean on pump gas - but runs great on Avgas. You get a lot of the chunky stuff out that way right off the bat, from any pump any station I have tried so far. Seated inside the gas tank, the fuel pump pressurizes the entire fuel system to make sure your Honda has all the power you need whenever you need it. .
Going to gift myself one at the upcoming holiday consumer binge buying season. This video provides step-by-step repair instructions for replacing the fuel filter on a Honda small engine which is commonly found in lawn mowers, riding tractors, zero-turn radius mowers, wheeled edgers, pressure washers, and generators. Or maybe the increasing ethanol content in the pump gas is making the engine run lean. Pump gas is designed for vehicles with much larger everything in them, including their built in filters. Who knows, heard rumors on the internets that the refiners might stop selling pure gas for the most part, the push for ethanol in gas and even more ethanol percentage wise has a powerful lobby behind it.
The other thing I do is not trust gross pump gas straight for any small engines. All my fuel from the five gallon can gets run through a filter funnel into the smaller cans. I am not a big fan of using Avgas in my chainsaws. When fuel pumps begin to fail, it usually causes your Honda to lose power, start harder, and hesitate on the throttle. The smaller cans feed the various equipment.
Ethanol blends require a slightly richer mixture to run correctly. The fuel pump on your Honda is kind of a big deal. My filter funnel is a fine mesh, but these look even better, pulls out any water as well as the chunky stuff. The most common reasons for replacing the fuel filter are when the engine is hard to start, runs poorly, or leaks gas. If it ran right once. And, when you buy a genuine Honda replacement, you can rest assured your fuel system will perform as expected day in and day out. .
