Re: What to buy? Best generator and AC units for under $2,000

Average Fuel Consumption

(gal./hr.)

No Load 0.51
1/2 Load 0.76
Full Load 1.07

NO, NO, NO, NO! If Yes, can I borrow or HAVE some money, because it doesn't seem like you want to hang on to it. Full
load uses 1.07 gallons per hour x $3.50/gallon = $3.75 per hour x 10 hours = $37.50. Half load isn't much better and that's after you spent over $2500 for the genie. That doesn't take into consideration ripoff gas prices in different areas. Someone did a comparison on this forum about fuel usage/savings. You could use some of that money to buy caviar for starving kids in Switzerland.

I agree with what Matt/KC10Chief said about the Honda's or some other brand that sips fuel and is quiet as hell. It's more money/KW, but the savings in fuel pay off big time in a hurry. It won't take long to pay for a second and third genie. You would only run what you need and they're portable. I would also look at battery banks, solar and wind power. I would hate to see you waste money. Just my humble opinion.

I just read my post. I don't mean for it to sound harsh. I don't want you to waste money.
