processhead yes, that is certainly a concern of mine. I don’t get around to starting it once/week but do so once a month. I don’t store it with too much gasoline in the tank either and I stabilize it and store it with the fuel switch turned to off. I let it run with the fuel turned off, to keep the carb empty before putting it back up. If I’m working with some saws or powertools outside, I sometimes get that generator out to run them, rather than running from a shop outlet, to give it some exercise.
