Hi Guys,
Thanks for the Add! I think I have one of the last XG800e generators. It has about 44 hours on it. I switch out my gas every 6 mos. this last gas switch I now run ethanol free 90 octane gas. Today I ran it while building my shed today and it has a slight miss. This generator has I’m calling it a vent that comes out of the top of the gas tank. It has a rubber hose that runs to the air filter box. I disconnected the hose from the vent and it ran better. I blew compressed air through the hose and it didn’t do anything. The air filter is clean. Any help is much appreciated.
Thanks
Mark

If you loosen the gas cap does it run better? if so I would suspect the vent in the cap is partly blocked. How about any other maintenance in the past, spark plug, clean the carb., do you use a fuel stabilizer when it's laid up?

yes I use Sea Foam. On mine there is a vent coming out of the top of the generator with a rubber hose that runs to the air box.

That's the breather vent. 
Check the gas tank vent, usually part of the gas cap.  It will definitely NOT be connected to the intake.
