Maybe it was me. I have a 2000w and it will run 12 hours on a gallon at
half load; no hyperbole. My freezer and refrigerator are only 200w and my
furnace is 500w, thats only 900w in total. (starting the freezer is
another story, the generator stalled once doing that; but once in about 2
weeks of use isn't bad.)
A bigger generator will use more gas than a small generator, even doing the
same thing. Gas can be hard to find in a power outage. Buy the smallest
generator that will satisfy your needs.
I haven't seen the 3500w, but most small ones are one "phase".
Hey, please dont multipost, crosspost instead. Its really annoying to find
half the responses to a post in one group and days later discover the other
half of the answers in another group. you posted this same article in
alt.home.repair and then again in alt.energy.homepower
Make one post and put both groups in it with a follow up to one group only.
