New pressure washer. Ran it today for 2 hrs with amsoil HDD 5w30. Will dump before next use. This is the magnetic fill plug after 2 hrs. Oil is still clear. I really like these for engines with no filter.

A magnetic dipstick/ drain plug is 100% better than nothing.

This amount of goop is typical of small engine slough off especially in early hours.

My hondas and all air cooled gensets without filters exhibit the same goop

I use extended run tanks and they can run for days.

I have a Honda EU2200i generator, and I ordered this set up. The threaded extension makes oil changes very easy and "mess" free.

This is what i use. The only thing about it, is it gets hot, compared to plastic fill plugs. So don't open it hot.
