    I’ve seen that Handi and it looks good, I was worried about the run time as well. Can you throw up some pics inside box? Where do you carry extra fuel?

    I’ve been researching all the #### gens. One day a diesel one will be in the cards.

    Carbs have a float that regulates how much fuel is in the bowl. Level rises, float rises and shuts off fuel until it goes down a bit and can top off the bowl again. Many systems have fuel pumps putting the fuel to the carb under pressure, no different than a gravity fed system would have fuel under some pressure just without a pump. Look close enough into the regs and you will also see that a gravity fed fuel system is not allowed on a truck, it's a tricky one to find but it is there.

    Don't all gravity fed generators have their gas tanks over the engine?
