Do you need to run it constantly? We had 16 gallons of fuel in the generator and gas cans. All the vehicles were full of fule too and I have a siphon pump. If it was really bad I had intentions of firing it up every few hours just enough to keep the fridge/freezer cold, keep some heat in the house and get water. I'm on a well pump.
That's what I care about most is that well pump. After that the fridge/freezer. Everything else is redundant for me. Cookstove and cyl are both handfeds and I don't need a TV (have a nice library) and have alladin lamps with mantles that are nice and bright.
