Luckily mine has a sensor and won't run without oil.
My neighbor's generator's gas tank is like a square donut and the spark-plug
is accessible through the hole, my generator's spark-plug is offset at an
angle through the side. Seems a little stupid having the spark-plug right
next to the gas fill cap.
I told my neighbor that most generator related injuries come from adding gas
to a hot generator and he should be careful.
Every year people blow themselves up adding gas to a running generator.
My neighbors generator looks like they designed it to get someone hurt.
