I bought a $449.00 Westinghouse 2000 w inverter gen at Costco on Sunday.
I put some gas in it after filling the crank case and tried to start it. Wouldn't start.
I read the owners manual again and noticed that it stated it would start easier with a full tank of fuel. Filled it up and it started on the second pull.
I ran it for about an hour, it had a little miss never did go away. I attempted to start it again on Monday and it would not start until I topped off the fuel. I let it run for about 1/2 hour shut it off and tried to start it again. It wouldn't start until I topped off the fuel tank again.
I returned it on Tuesday. Who wants a generator that needs to be refueled every time you start it.
I guess it's time to bite the bullet and buy another Honda 2000 i.

I think it is best to pay the extra $$ and get an electric start. That way my spouse will B able to start a difficult to start generator.
