I have always used ethanol fuel in my generators, for maybe 10 years now. Not one problem starting and running. Stabil is added to the tank with every fill up.

I believe what is most important when considering your generators is test running for 15-30 minutes per month every month. On the 1st of every month I run mine (all 3) for about 15 minutes. If problems occur it gives you a chance to repair or correct them before the generator is needed in an emergency. It's foolish to have a generator stored in your shed for 5 years and believe that after 5 years of sitting its going to start and run without issues.
