Smitty, how much gas are you consuming? I have a 7.5 KW Generac my grandfather gave me that he purchased sometimes in the 90's, I've done 9.5 hrs since sat evening @ maybe 12 gal/gas. I have a tripplite UPS hooked to a battery for my stoker in the shed, so far it hasn't died but I haven't seen the UPS kick off yet either during my generator runs. I crank the oil furnace while the generator is up, stoker boiler is mainly doing hot water, output is too slow to keep running the generator. I'm jealous of you hand fired guys now. I got lucky and found a place to fill the gas cans with no lines tonight, I'm not going to advertise though, I heard horror stories of wait times and gas limits in Southwick. CL&P is saying some folks could be out a week, my company has no power, just heard I have work off tomorrow too. Currently tethering phone to laptop, kind of like dial up all over again, but all in all not bad. I wonder how dedicated AT&T is to keeping Diesel in their cell tower generators.
