All those additives that are in the unleaded fuel don't vaporize and burn off cleanly. They start building up on the inside of the generator. Typically, they are difficult to remove. The usual practice is to replace the generator.

Hmm. I guess I shouldn't say "reduce the life of the stove." I should probably say "reduce the life of the generator."
