    Hi, you will all be pleased to know that my Honda 2 Stroke Gennie has been repaired here in Spain.
    It now runs like new, just like a 2 Stroke should.

    We arrive in the UK at the end of June, WOULD IT BE COURTEOUS TO POST OUR PLANNED OVERNIGHTERS. :LOL::LOL:

    Yes Honda EX 500, it was bought about 18 years ago, nice bit of kit. Cannot be heard running if put a full ehu cable away. About 4 hours running on 1 litre, slow speed setting.

    Dont expect to need it this summer, we are going to Northern England and Scotland and have a Solar panel. :LOL: But as its been repaired we will take it along as a back up, in the past when we have used it, many years ago I must add, we've always managed to establish a good conversation with our neighbours, before they moved on, which without the Gennie probably wouldn't have been possible. We've met some nice folk using the Gennie, albeit only for a short period.(y)

    The judicious use of a noisy and smelly genny can do a lot for expanding the useable space around your motorhome.

    Sadly, my genny is so quiet and fume free that it is quite useless in this respect.

    JJ :cool:

    A very nice side effect of a 2 stroke generator is that the midges & mosquitoes hate the smell. Ours is often used for this purpose before needing EHU. Here's wishing you good health to enjoy your rejuvenated generator.

    In fact I have an old two stroke generator in my shed that's only used to keep the biting critters at bay. We live right on the edge of the Galloway country park forest so midge swarms are the norm on a damp summers evening.

    Robert.
