P2200 generator

Test
Feb 5, 2021 | 18:34 1 Likely this ? Has been discussed, anyway:

I bought a B&S portable generator, model P 2200, and will only start if I remove the spark plug and put a little gas in cylinder. Then fires right up. Was told the problem is regular pump gas and should remove all gas in it and fill with 91 or 93 is best, but not available.
Has anyone experience with these engines. TIA Reply With Quote

Standard procedure with Stihl motors
Doesn’t hurt anything

The generator started up smoothly from the first start. This is my first generator, so there is nothing to compare with. Here its characteristics are described, it will suddenly come in handy.
