Default Honda eu2000 generator

Thought I would share this with you guys.
I gig a lot. One of the biggest pain in the butt chores is refueling the generator. Gotta do it slow, or you got a mess. I can run almost 7 hours on a tank of fuel. So I refuel every day. If I go on an all nighter, I gotta cut the generator off, let it cool off, then try to refuel in the dark. Not any more. This hose assembly will connect to my fuel /water separator and the cap goes on the generator. You can hook it up to a 6 gallon boat fuel tank if you want. The hose has a quick disconnect.
I will never have to refuel again. Plus I'm running off filtered marine gas.
Got it off ebay. Standard hose length is 4 feet. Got mine 7 feet. $98 includes 2 day shipping. Just thought I'd share it with you guys. Might help some of you all nighters, like Terry.

Let me see if I have this hookup correct, Do you have to pump the bulb to refill the tank or do you just hook it up pump it up and the engine running will suck the fuel into the tank like an outboard?

The squeeze bulb is not necessary. The eu2000 will suck the fuel from the auxillary tank or seperator as it uses it from its own tank because the tank vent is eliminated when you swap caps.

That is awesome but I have to only re fuel once a night w/ my Honda. I reckon this would fit other gennys though!

Hey Jason, this is for "hard core giggers" that are out all night! The nocturnal boys.

That will work perfect for me when going down the highway or stopped for the night with cabover camper and boat. Put the 2000i in boat hook up to boat fuel system start AC and go yo sleep. I am gonna build a cap and try it

I had to call the guy to get a longer hose. The bulb he said is not vital, but will help prime it up in case of a disconnection. Going to hook it up now.

The quick connection is like an air hose chuck setup both sides seal up.
