Small Engines (Lawn Mowers, etc.)/Electric Fuel Pump

Question
I want to use a Honda EU3000i generator in a small motorhome. I want to use the fuel ( gasoline ) from the motorhome`s fuel tank, I will need a small electric fuel pump to supply the fuel that previously was gravity fed.  Where can I find an electric fuel pump to supply the fuel without flooding out the engine? What else will I need to make this work?  Thanks  John

Answer
There are lots of electic fuel pumps for Onan RV generators.  They are pretty expensive.  You might be able to use an automative style electric fuel pump but you would need a regulator as well to reduce the pressure.

I would post a message and see if others have used Honda generators in RVs.

Experience

Born and raised in the midwest. Started tinkering with engines when I was about 14 on my Suzuki RM-80. I began lawn mower repair at a small hardware store. I knew absolutely nothing. I read lots of repair manuals and met an older fellow who taught me many lessons. I continued working on small engines through high school and paid my way through college working on mowers at the same hardware store. Decided to get away from the midwest and mower repair so I joined the Air Force. I repaired air traffic control electronic equipment and ended up in Hawaii where I got a part time job at Small Engine Clinic. I gained a lot of experience from the Small Engine Clinic and had a blast repairing small engines. I then took the Briggs and Stratton Master Service Technician test and earned my MST. I then traveled to Wisconsin where I attended the factory update training seminar and received formal training. Continued working on mowers part time as I completed 20 years of military. Retired from the military on a Friday and continued in the lawn and garden industry the next Monday.
