By the way, the 30W oil for small engines is in the lawn and garden section at Wal-Mart. Don't look for it in automotive where you normally look for oil. Wal-Mart had one brand of 30W small engine oil that had the SL API service classification - one of the three recommended service classifications referenced in the owners manual.
Be sure to print out your Amazon order details and put them with your owners manual. That will serve as your proof of purchase in the event you need to have any repairs made during the 2-year warranty period.
I also purchased the WEN 56406 cover, but it was way too large for the 1800 generator, While it looks to be very durable and well made, it was simply not made for this generator.
Overall, this is a sweet little generator. I highly recommend it if it meets your power requirements.
UPDATE: Since the Wen 56406 cover didn't work out because it was too large, I decided to try a plastic tote like container. I carefully measured the generator dimensions and went to the store with my tape measure. After measuring a number of containers that looked like they might work, I settled on one that seemed to be the perfect size. It cost $5.47 plus tax. See attached pics. I like the advantage that I can use this container to haul the generator around in my van and the container will keep any oil or fuel from leaking onto the van interior. So far, this is a better "cover" than the Wen 56406.
So my generator died today. I know that sounds bad, but if you read the rest of this review, you will see why I still rate it 5 stars.
This generator is rated for low use, as in a few hours a week. Well, since I bought it, I have run it an average of 6 hours a day, 6-7 days a week with very little trouble. I had a capacitor go out on it about 5 months after I bought it, but when sent me a new one overnight at no charge.
About 2 weeks ago, it started burning through oil and a bit of investigation discovered the cause was worn rings and seals.
So even though this thing wore out in just under a year, I give it 5 stars because I ran it 10 times more than it was rated to run. I ran it into the ground and it took it for a long time. I will not be getting a new one simply because I need a bigger generator now. But I will definitely be replacing this one with a larger WEN Generator!
Here are the other reasons I rate it 5 stars:
Easy to move
Starts 1-2 pulls most of the time; 3-4 pulls in very cold (like under 20 degrees) weather.
Low fuel usage with decent runtime
Amazing customer support from WEN
