The Champion 100297 8000-Watt Dual Fuel Portable Generator is the perfect combination of versatility and convenience. Whether you need power for your home or various projects, this generator will fit the bill nicely. This Dual-Fuel generator offers the ultimate in power convenience: Run it on gasoline or propane, and you can easily switch fuels with its fuel selector switch that allows for safe shifting between fuel sources. The convenient electric start includes a battery, plus Cold Start Technology ensures a quick start in cold weather. You can easily monitor power output and track maintenance intervals with Intelligauge, which allows you to keep track of the generator’s voltage, hertz and run-time hours. Designed with a low oil shut-off sensor, this unit includes 1.2-quarts of 10W-30 oil. Using gasoline, the generator’s 459cc Champion engine produces 10,000 starting watts and 8,000 running watts, and will run for 8 hours at 50% load when the 6.0-gallon fuel tank is full; that's a full day, or night, of power. It produces 9,025 starting watts and 7,250 running watts and will run for 5 hours at 50% load when using a 20-pound propane tank. Also included is a 3.3-foot propane hose with a built-in regulator. With a noise level of 74 dBA from 23 feet, which is a bit louder than a vacuum, this machine can provide home backup in an outage, and the Volt Guard built-in surge protector prevents overloads and keeps your equipment safe. Plenty of outlets are available, with a 120V 30A locking outlet (L5-30R), a 120/240V 30A locking outlet (L14-30R) as well as four 120V 20A GFCI protected household outlets (5-20R). Setup is hassle free, and the foldaway U-shaped handle makes it easy to store, while the never-flat tires in the included wheel kit make transport a cinch.

Quality Product

I bought this generator in case of power loss. I like that it runs on propane and gas. I plan on using propane only but, good to know I can run it on gas in a pinch. Set up was easy and it started and it ran strong. Has a well made and durable feel.

It is great

I am only going to use propane with it. It started right up with no trouble. I will be using it when the power goes out. . I start it every two weeks to keep it charged up. I am going to hook up a battery charger to maintain the battery. I love it.

Great Product

Will do very well in case of power emergency. In California now we never know when the power utility will shut down power. It's nice to know I have a back-up plan.

We used this during a power outage already and it did great.

It is used to power tools around the property. I have not used the propane for fuel yet but I like that option. It is not what I would call noisy but I wish is where a little more quiet.
