The specific application I'm looking at is an apartment
complex (five buildins, 20 stories, about 800 apartments)
which doesn't have "real" backup power, but does have
a couple of rollable 5 kw or so gasoline units to let
them do some stuff.

(Note that this does NOT include moving the elevators...)

Anyway, I figured on dropping them a note to pick up
a diesel unit since... as we just got smacked in
our heads with... getting gasoline could easily be
a problem. On the other hand we've got thousands of
gallons of #2 heating fuel in our tanks, and for
the short term at least, that's cross compatable
with diesel fuel.

So with it really being a "spare" to the gasoline
units, it only has to be good, not great.

Of course, that's NOT what I'm going to tell them.

Still hoping for an inverter model... a diesel
version of the Honda EU series... or Yamaha's
similar line... drool...

Thanks to everyone.
