  6. Take your generator outside. (As a reminder, make sure you only operate your generator outdoors, at least 20 ft away from open doors and windows to prevent carbon monoxide poisoning).
  7. Connect the battery. (Note: Battery ships disconnected).
  8. Add oil (Note: We recommend 10W-30 oil)
  9. Select your fuel (If applicable). (Note: If using gasoline, fill the gas tank. If using propane, connect the propane line to your generator and the propane tank. If using natural gas, please consult a licensed plumber for connection options to your home.
