I run this little generator on my houseboat to top up up my house batteries (solar doesn't quite put enough power back in). I run a 20 amp charger, a TV, media centre, lights and small fridge while the gennie is running. On occasion I have forgotten to check the oil and the gennie switches off which saves the motor. Probably needs oil topping up every 15 hours or so. A great little unit, very economical only uses about 1/3 litre of petrol per hour.
Great for small jobs
Have used one of these for a week solid, powering a side-by-side fridge freezer, TV, home phone and internet gear, lighting and phone charging. Performs admirably. As the manual states though, smart throttle is best left switched off if you have a big fridge cycling. Good economy, would readily get 5 to 6 hours from the 2.6 litre tank, whether smart throttle was on or not. Definitely has me looking favourably at the bigger models for something I can run multiple fridges and/or washers from.
A great value generator, survived a very tough trip to cape york and back. Never missed a beat, can easily power 2 x 80l fridges running on a very cool setting + camp lights etc at night. Excellent on fuel consumption, uses no oil, all gauges and outputs work as the should. Probably not quite as quiet as a honda of the equivalent size, but only a fraction louder and certainly not an issue.
Reliable, inexpensive, energy efficient, quiet.
The only issue I found was the breather on the fuel cap does not function properly, that caused the generator...
