Re: Honda EU2000 Won't Start

I use ethanol free fuel and have had no issues in two years. Only use it a few times each summer.

Re: Honda EU2000 Won't Start

While I don't use mine on the boat I have had fuel issues, even with religious use of Marine Stabil, and tried just about every other stabilizer made. My problem is it can sit for six months or more between uses..

Also been through four carbs on our Honda HRX mower but those are now down to $16.00 so not worth cleaning, just replace it.

The only thing I have found that works is a product called TruFuel. I run normal stabilized gas in it when it needs to run for a while but then re-fill for storage and use only TruFuel.

I used to have to clean the carb with some regularity and since I began using TruFuel it just starts, as does my mower..... TruFuel is nothing more than a high purity non-ethanol fuel, with stabilizers and sold at exorbitant prices..

I've now also begun using the pre-mix stuff for my chain saw, weed wacker, leaf blower etc. too and zero issues. Ridiculous pricing but cheaper than my time and effort for carb cleaning..

It does seem to work though, and no, I can't get ethanol free gas in Maine.....

Re: Honda EU2000 Won't Start

See if you can get Avgas, it's 100LL of course and usually about $5 a Gl, Trufuel is about $30 a Gl here. I've never used Avgas in a two stroke though so I can't vouch for it there

Red neck spark testing: One to hold the plug and one to pull the crank. If they jump then you got spark! If you get a jolt...well...you were dumber than the other guy.

Re: Honda EU2000 Won't Start

Pull the spark plug and see if it's fouled ( black)or tan/ white.
Black is fouled and you need to burn that off or replace the plug.
White/tan is normal color but there may be no fuel to the carb .
Hondas clog up pretty easy if you don't run them a lot.
Try to squirt a shot of fuel into the intake area and see if it fires.
If not ,check for spark as mentioned

You know in most cases these things are repairable. Look on the Internet for a repair shop in your area.
