Pulled out the champion yesterday to knick the dust off, fired up 2nd pull! Ran with a shop vac going for 20 minutes, turned fuel off, let it run dry and put it away. I'm ready for Monday tooo!!

They are estimating we won't have power until Sunday the earliest so going to be a lot of refilling gas tanks. Going through about 15 gallons a day.

I'm finally getting use out of my Generac GP6500 I've had for 5 years or so. Been running for 36+ hours straight, already put 15 gallons into it! My biggest regret however is not getting a transfer switch for it as I cannot heat my house. :(

Make sure you shut down and check your oil every 8-10 hours and top off as required. I’m Going to do an oil change on mine as I just hit 30 hrs on a new generator. Ready if anything comes out of the Monday storm

You are lucky. I have been already 48 hours without electricity and spent 3 full cans of gas ~$60 in gas, to keep house and fish/coral tanks. I expect at least another 24-36 hours more without electricity.

When this all blows over I have a simple way to get your forced got air furnace running during a power outage (gas must be uncompromised)
