What is the difference between the Honda EB, EM and EU generators?
Thomas W Murphy 
from Wisconsin 
June 26, 2014
Answer
Thanks for your inquiry.

The Honda EU series is considered the "Super Quiet" series and range from 1,000 watts to 7,000 watts. These units are totally enclosed and primarily used for recreational purposes.

The Honda EB series are considered "Industrial" and range from 3,000 watts to 10,000 watts. These units have Full GFCI protected outlets to meet OSHA standards on jobsites.

The Honda EM series are considered the "Deluxe" series and range in 4,000 watts to 6,500 watts. These units have electric start and are primarily used for home backup.

Is there anything I need to know about these generators since they have a longer filler neck?
Karen 
from Illinois 
March 15, 2011
Answer
This generator has a longer filler neck and filler cap/dipstick for checking the engine oil.

This generator must not be filled with oil until the oil runs out of the filler neck. This will cause the engine to be overfilled with oil.

You must use the gauge in the oil filler cap/dipstick to verify the correct amount of oil in the engine. The engine is full of oil when the oil is up to the top of the cross-hatched area of the filler cap/dipstick. As always, do not screw in the filler cap/dipstick when checking the oil level.

You can find this information in the Owner's Manual as well.
