Our Powerhorse 4500 Extended Run Time Fuel Kit is the safest way to extend the run time of your generator. This kit was originally developed for the Powerhorse 3500 but both generators use the same 212cc engine, frame and fuel tank so this kit is a direct fit on this generator also.

Our Powerhorse 4500 Extended Run Time Fuel kit was specifically developed to work correctly with the Powerhorse 4500. 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.
You will never have to shut down your generator to refuel again. Our Powerhorse 4500 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 Powerhorse 4500 up to 12 hours at full load or 22 hours at half load 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.
This product has been validated for use on gasoline versions of this generator only. It is not recommended for use on propane or dual fuel versions of 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.
