You can drain it out through the carburetor or use a small hand pump. It's recommended to drain the fuel if the generator is not used for more than 45 days. Please see below for a pump.

Yes, you can use a small hand pump to extract fuel from the tank, or let it drain out through the carburetor. Full procedure to do this is in the owner's manual. Honda does recommend fully draining the fuel if the generator is not used for more than 45 days. -Robert@Honda

Question

What is THD of this unit, OK with TV and PC computer?

What is the THD? Is this unit safe to operate with my Plasma TV and PC?
I am using this as a backup for my home, Is this safe when using for my Plasma TV and PC computer or should I only be looking at an Inverter model? $2500 is about the Max of my budget.
Thx.

Honda does not give a THD rating on the generator. It would be safe to use on TV or computers. It is recommended to use a surge protector.
