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.

Works great out of the box

I followed the simple instructions and easily assembled the wheels and battery. I connected my propane tank, set the switches, and it cranked up on the first try. I love the dual fuel option. It settled in very quickly, and I was able to attach sever…

Great product

For backup emergency power for the house it's hard to beat this product. Dual fuel capability lets me run off the house's LNG tank so no need to store gasoline...and with LNG no problem with carb gumming up in storage. Low THD so will run electronics…

Crucial part of storm prep

Recently experienced a power outage at our new home. Luckily the power was only out for less than 2 hours. During those 2 hours, our sump was filling up with water fast. I have a network rack with a large UPS that I used to keep the sump pump running…

Easy to set up and easy to start.

Had it up and running 20 minutes after I opened the box. Very minimal assembly needed. Big plus that it comes with a regulated LPG line. It is a bit heavy and loud but it is 8000 watts so that is to be expected. Started right up on propane.
