After much debate I ended up with a gasoline generator.
For reference, I operated my S130 along with a refrigerator and an upright freezer with a 2000 watt (peak) Honda generator during hurricane Sandy. No, I don't have figures for amp draw, actual power requirements, etc. but I know I didn't max out the generator. I can't remember exact sequencing of operation, starting, etc. but I know I had them all running together for a time. I don't know if this helps, just thought I'd pass it along.

Sandy's temps were not below zero.
