Mix DuraLube in the oil.
Change the oil at about 1/2 the normal running time.
Drain or run it out of gas every use unless you plan to use it within a week,

It reminds me a lot of my Generac 6500 watt generator. Ive had mine for about 5 years, with absolutley no problems and ive probably put about 100 hours of running time, which isnt much. Honestly as long as you have any type of generator you really cant go wrong in an emergency. Its not like your going to be running it for a year straight, so I say good purchase. I really want to switch mine to LP and modify it to hook up to my fireplace gas outlet.

i have a 6500 for 6 years now i got at harbor and its still a beast i hook it directly to my panel i have a permenate connection on both rails i just turn off the main so it doesnt back feed and kill a line man and flip 2 breakers i installed on the bottom of the panel plug this 220 line into the generator and give it a pull mine is hooked to my 500 gallon propane tank so if the power goes out its flip 3 breakers and 1 pull i live in tornado alley we lose power alot and its awesome
