Our local Honda Power Equipment dealer told me of this warning so I thought it may be appropriate to let Boggers know too.

A customer of his brought a two week old EU10 that had had a dose of dirty fuel. The job to clean it out was horrendous. A complete dismantle as you can't drain the tank without taking it out, the fuel pump is located in behind the tank and the carby is equally as difficult to get at. Of course, all this has to be removed, cleaned and re-assembled. Apparently about an 8 hour job without interruptions.
The EU20 is of the same design as the EU10.

Could cost as much as $400 for the work.

So the warning is: Make sure you use the cleanest fuel, syphon/pump and funnel.

Another KISS tip.

Cheers..................Rob
Leaving on next trip soon
