Don't know about you but i can hardly drive 80 mph all the time.  I
average something more like 30 mph, not much freeway driving.  Even with
freeways much of my driving is during "rush hour" and often not above 40
mph average.

That's nothing.. I had a friend two blocks over.. newly installed
Generac standby.  (propane)..  throw a rod after operating for a just
few hours during Hurricane Wilma.   It took them 8 days to get a
replacement motor.   (their power was out for ~16 days)..  


Meanwhile, My 2200 RPM 2.5Kw Diesel.. ran for 10(5 in am, 5 in pm)
hours a day for 13 days, no problem, finally used up most of my 6 year
old diesel fuel(~18 gallons).

or American

Sound like the same problem with my WI made GenXXX standby generator.
I haven't open it up yet, The rotor lock up, perhaps by the starter.

Where are the Germans and Japaneses?

Honda is pretty good, but you're going to pay more. A good Honda 4000W
generator is maybe $,200 vs. Harbor Fright's $39 for 3500W and $99
for 5,500W. "Sportsman" has a 4000W one for $29.

But i want to run on NG.  I paid $700 for the Generac 8KW.  Are there
conversion kits for NG?
