Tempting. I have a travel trailer and I really love to dry camp-- having a portable generator would be awesome. I have been looking for months. The honda 2000i is generally considered the gold standard at about 1K$. There is a Wen, for half the price (it was $599) that gets terrific reviews but has disappeared from stores. Then you get into the swamp territory. This is an unusual one because it has the dual fuel option, but the propane runs much less efficiently. I can't decide if the convenience is worth the extra complexity that is a faster road toward failure. I am *** with small motors Frown also, the db rating looks like it is at no load-- it is tough to get direct comparisons but most will give you a rating at half load.
Would LOVE someone else's thoughts!! No reviews at Walmart, and I think this is their brand.

I can see where dual fuel might be handy or make it more versatile but unless you have propane service at your house.... e.g. for a fireplace... propane is more of a pain than gas. Has anyone done the cost proposition on that? iow propane is less efficient but does it cost less to run?

With the 1 gal fuel tank and using their numbers:

7h / 1 gal gas, let's say gas @ $3 / gal: ~ $0.4 / h on gasoline

18h p. tank, refill ~$15 (?) : ~ $0.8 / h on propane

But I don't think the argument for propane is in the cost, it's the convenience.

Propane doesn't degrade like gas (especially ethanol-laced gas).
So if you only keep this as a backup for outages you just keep a filled propane tank with it and can run for a while once the power goes out, that gives you time to get fresh gas.

And if you use it regularly but infrequently, for shorter duration each time (maybe take your electrical chainsaw to the woods to make some firewood),
you don't have to drain and dry the carb each time (which you should do to avoid startup or running problems caused by old gasoline residue).
