New Impact 25v - Dirty (Black) fuel

We just picked up our new toy hauler only to find the fuel station had a series of problems.

- the 1/2" fuel feed line was kinked and allowed no fuel to flow. I will be installing 8an fittings to rectify this one.

- the fuel that is being dispensed is dirty or black. does anyone know how to rectify this one? Id rather not have to wait 3 months for the RV shop to have an opening. Im hoping the fuel didnt damage the generator (10 minutes of run time)

Im still very new to more complex toy haulers and didnt find much upon searching on this forum for this specific issue.

I would seriously hope there was/is a filter on that line before the fuel pump to the generator. If not there would be one before running the generator again, with a couple spares on hand. If the fuel looks like that it's likely from the tank construction, welding slag & burnt particles in the tank & not rinsed out before installation.
