To be clear, Not all the Hondas are super quiet. These are the super quiet ones:

EU1000 -- "lunch box". Around $700.

EU2000 -- bigger "lunch box". Around $900 or $1000.

EU3000 -- a 140 lbs. "crate", but has self starter and large gasoline tank with gauge. And
may actually be the quietest -- at least at low output. Around $1.700.

Tons of info about joining units and auxiliary gasoline tanks for EU1000 and EU2000
on the Burning Man forum.

I definently check it out. I remember going to a web site that had that information, but it's lost on my favorite list.

Thanks again for the info.

It would be worth adding the EN series in there, Elliott. While not as quiet or just plain cool as the EU series, they are very good generators and are more affordable upfront. The only reason I throw that out there is because I have experience with one and am considering buying one if I can get it on the cheap.

As far as plumbing exhaust together ....don't do it !. not only will the gennie feed exhaust back through the bus's engine, causing damage ( carbon buildups etc.) but the bus will also back feed through the gennie. Keep these two systems seperate ESPECIALLY when you are only using one at a time .

I'm visualizing, cartoon style, all the soot from the big diesel engine clogging up
the poor little gasoline engine!
