Our Honda EU6500iS Extended Run Time Fuel Kit was specifically developed to work correctly with the Honda EU6500iS. It is not a through the cap, one size fits all, or a gravity feed system. Our kits use an internal fuel pump included in the kit to transfer fuel so the remote tank does not need to be higher than the generator to work correctly. Simply place the remote tank on the ground next to the generator then connect the fuel hose and you are all set. It is very important that you use only the components supplied in the kit, do not mix and match with locally improvised items due to the fact that they may not be 100% compatible and therefore inhibit performance of the kit. We do our best to select the highest quality components for our kits, for example we tested several different brands of prime ball hose before we chose the Yamaha hose due to the fact that it outlast the other brands and it stays more flexible in cold temperatures.
I originally developed this kit for the EU6500iS but it also fits the EM5000iS and the EM7000iS. The instruction Video was shot using the EU6500iS because that is the most difficult generator to install this product on. In order to install this product on the open frame models the procedure is the same but you do not have to deal with the cabinet, so it is a lot easier to install.
You will never have to shut down your generator to refuel again. Our Honda EU6500iS Extended Run Time Fuel Kit is designed to alternate from one tank to the next while the generator is still running. Our kit will allow you to alternate between as many tanks of any size you choose. Based on manufacturer fuel consumption claims with a 6 gallon fuel tank you can run a Honda EU6500is for up to 6 hours at full load or 13 hours at half load on a 6 gallon fuel tank, before alternating to the next fuel tank.
You will never have to risk personal injury again pouring gasoline into a hot generator. With our AUXILIARY REMOTE FUEL TANK SYSTEM you can just switch to a remote fuel supply more safely at a distance of up to 10 feet away from this generator.
The fuel tank itself is not included in this kit due to the fact that it seems no two customers need the exact same size fuel tank. Here is a link that may help you find the proper sized fuel tank for your needs.

Edward D Pierce –
Incredible upgrade – a must for anyone who owns an EU6500iS. I installed this days before Hurricane Sandy hit New Jersey. This functioned flawlessly. I later on added a Moeller 10 gallon fuel cell doubling the fuel capacity as well as run time from ~14 hours on 25% load to more than a day. Also, from a safety perspective, refilling a fuel cell is much safer than refueling the generator tank.
