Ok, you are lazy, and there aren't any good solutions for lazy people.
If you weren't so lazy, I would reccomend that generator solution. It
will not only solve your water problems, but it would also provide
some lights and fans to move the heat from the wood stove around.
Web based forums are like subscribing to 10 different newspapers
and having to visit 10 different news stands to pickup each one.
A small generator set is really your best option . Use it to fill the
tank<s> then shut it down . Most modern sets have a valve to shut off fuel
flow so you can run the carb dry , and a little sta-bil in the tank
<especially if you can get non-eth fuel> will keep the gas usable for
My ETQ two stroke developed some really awful rod
knock after I ran it dry a couple times. Need to
use the rocker switch, and leave the gas mix in
the crankcase. Still runs, but the quiet is gone.
I thought I was helping, by running it dry.

According to every chain saw manual I have ever seen (and I have seen a whole bunch) they should be run dry before putting them away. Even at the last 'cough' they have just drawn charge of fuel/oil mix.
I made the mistake of getting a generator about 20 years ago and just opened
the box to see what kind of plugs and oil I would need, then sitting th ebox
back over it.
The wiring is no problem for me. Had that taken care, but when it came time
for me to use the generator, I could not get it started. It was dark and I
could not see it too well with just the flashlight. The next day my son
came over and we looked at it. Seems that it has an on/off switch that I
missed seeing in the dark, and the manual did not have it listed either,
They showed the very old style of springie thing over the spark plug to shut
off the engine. I doubt that method had been used in many years.

Isn't it the cold dark nights that really are a
mess. And that's when you most need the camp fire,
generator, propane heater, and so on. Strap on
head lamp. And the list goes on.
