Just found a way that contractors store their generators. Install a petcock in the fuel line just before the carburetor, close it off while the generator is running. It will then run out of gas, empty the carburetor and be ready to be turned on in the Spring. No varnish buildup!

In the winter I'll run it for about 45 minutes or so, with an electric heater and the convection oven at 450.
I always maintain my generator. It was a godsend a couple years ago when we had a storm that knocked out power at the house for about three days. I just parked it in the driveway and ran an extension cord into the house, powered the fridge and the fish tanks.

Do that with all of my small engines.
