I can start the generator runs for 10 - 15 mins. cuts off. Start it right back up runs for 10 - 15 cuts off

Hi my name is Robert....

Yes it should have an inline fuel filter, click HERE and have a look.... IF it runs and cuts off I would replace the filter, if the problem continues I would get a can of fuel and see if it will run from the can, if it runs from the can then I would be checking the hose from the tank to the generator, if the line was cracked or you had a loose fitting then it could suck air and shut the generator down, if it still fails to run hooked up to the tank make sure the tank has more then 1/4 of fuel, after that it could be a fuel pump issue..... Hope this helps some... Robert
