Amsoil and New Honda 2000 Generator

3 posts in this topic

Hey Amsoil man, I have a question for you. I recently bought a 2000 Honda generator, and have regular oil in it. As of now, I only have run it about 10 minutes. My buddy told me not to put Amsoil in it until it is broken in. Like 3 or 4 hours. He gave me a whole bunch of reasons why not to. I think he is full of it. What do you say? Thanks

I didn't run it right away either, but not cuz I couldn't. I just didn't have access to it right away. I put mobile one in it, ran my fish house the first weekend, brought it home, bought amsoil and changed it. if it's only in a short while anyway, why spend more on amsoil?? just my 2cents

In general with today's engines there is little to no break-in required. What does Honda recommend as a 'normal' oil change interval? My guess is 25 hours for your generator. My preference is I would like to see at least 3 to 5 hours on a break in petroleum oil before putting AMSOIL in it. (Just set it out in the yard and let it run for several hours, plug in a couple of lights to have a light load on it.) (That's what I did with a 5kva generator I bought several years ago.) (Similarly with lawn mowers I recommend mowing your yard a couple of times before changing to AMSOIL.)

You didn't ask, but for all the small 4-stroke utility engines (generators, pressure washers, lawn mowers, small tractors, etc.) the best choice with AMSOIL is our new Formula 4-Stroke Small Engine Oil, 10W-30/SAE 30, product code ASE. More info at this link

      The DNR has tried introducing lake trout into several lakes in the past 10 years or so. Most attempts have been unsuccessful (hanging horn lake for example). DNR recently increased the number of lakers stocked in big trout, but numbers are continuing to decline. I would have rather seen them cut back on the numbers stocked into burntside as opposed to stopping it altogether. The heavy fishing pressure and the predation by smelt is a tough 1-2 combo for lakers to deal with.

      Did anyone try holland on opener, or any day since? Just wondering if anyone had any luck.

      My brother hammered walleyes and perch . Him and his friend ended up with 70 eyes caught and kept their limit and had 30 perch from 6 feet of water.

      My old man and I had fun time today even though he only added 5 gills and one crappie. I schooled my old man but we enjoyed fresh fish No worries no gills over 8 inches kept or crappies over 12
