Rated 5 out of 5 by from Houston Freeze Tested We lost power early Monday morning and started up this generator. Powered everything we needed it to and ran far longer than we expected on one tank of gas. It ran through several nights in 14 degree weather without ever stopping. We were so happy to have this. We even powered a heater for the next-door neighbors.
