Well, I didn't say it was a "good" solution... ;)

LOL, sorta joking about putting a tee in the main fuel line... might work though?  For me fuel cost the same on the top of the tank as the bottom so I fill 'er up way before it gets to 1/4 tank.  I need to stop anyway, take a break and walk around a bit.  If you forget that the genny is running and run outa diesel, you are in deep trouble on so many levels it would be crazy... oh well.

Yes, the tee would work with the right conditions, but it's not something I would recommend. We have run our fuel level down low enough that the generator quit around the 1/4 mark while underway a couple of times, but it was while we were in the process of selecting a refueling stop, so it was not a problem to go without it for the short time involved.
