Hi, the engine, and generator have separate pick ups in the fuel tank, the generator pickup only goes down aprox to the 1/4 tank level, this is so you wont run yourself out of fuel, with the generator running. The two pumps are independent of each other, please get back to me and we can discuss this further, Michael
