I'm used to always turning the choke off when shutting an implement down. I have a Honda E2000i genny that I dearly love, but sometimes I forget to turn the choke lever back off after one of my two week checkout runs. I've been noticing that the generator seems to start quicker (one pull usually) when I've done that. Otherwise, it may take a few pulls. Not that I'm complaining; I can live with that, but I'm trying to get my wife comfortable with the generator and she's not strong. I'm on a campaign to get her used to running things around here if things go wrong in our rural situation. Is there anything wrong with leaving the choke lever on when unused? Any other thoughts? Internal combustion engines is not my strong suit. EDIT: I didn't mean to imply that I leave the choke on throughout a test run. I always nurse it off ater it starts to run well, but I've noticed that sometimes, it is still on when I go out to do a run. Not sure why, but it seems to start easier when that happens.
