The generator you're comparing has a smaller engine and produces less wattage both peak and continuous - it makes sense it would be more efficient....
The unit you're comparing to has a 457cc engine. The XP13000EH is a 500cc.
Your comparison would be more appropriate to the XP12000EH with the 457cc engine:
https://www.duromaxpower.com/prod...-generator

You should consider the amperage output (for 120 and 240V depending on your use) for both gasoline/propane at peak and running wattage. The "efficiency" or fuel used over a certain period of time only tells half the story...

And the specs are basically the same as far as fuel usage. 8.83 gallons for 8.83 hours. 6.6 gallons for 12 hours is definitely way more efficient. And available from amazon for the same price as lowes with free shipping.

I used to buy these on Ebay for $500 when they go on sale. Ran them on propane to augment the solar charging at the farm when the sun is at the wrong side of the valley in winter. Not bad, as long you don't get a problematic one.

If you're that concerned with efficiency you should opt for one with EFI...
Unless an engine is running at a considerably lower RPM I doubt you would see a drastic real world difference in efficiency wit h all other variables being equal.

Most communities allow LEGAL Storage of 10-25 gallons(some less)
8.3gallons per 6.6 hours gets you 19.8 hours of runtime for 25 Gallons

With the one you mention.XP12000EH
STILL A GAS GUZZLER.
8Gal capacity Run Time at 1/2 Load (Hours) 8.83

Just proves my point...How INEFFICIENT these units really are.Peace

In REAL World usage - Hurricanes for example
It makes a HUGE Difference.

I have a different Duromax that is rated 4 gallons/8 hours @ 1/2 load. In the real world, I got 13 hours consistently. I was running (4) 25 cubic foot freezers on it (among other things), so surely I was using at least 1/2 load. It could be those specs aren't accurate.

BTW, I was sharing the generator with another family for the 9 days we had no power after Sandy. For the most part, we took a 1/2 day each, so my freezers were not powered on the other 1/2 of the day - so you can bet that when they were on the generator, the compressors were running most of the time.

Regardless, if you are buying one of these, make sure you have adequate fuel storage, because when the power is out at your home, it's probably out at the nearby gas stations also. If you will be travelling hours to buy gas, and waiting on mile long lines like we did in the Sandy aftermath, you'll want to minimize the number of trips you'll need to make.

If you think you'll be syphoning gas from your car gas tank for your generator, if your car is a Honda, think again. Honda's (we found out the hard way) have a something between the filler neck and gas tank that prevents you from getting the syphon hose into the gas tank.

Chest freezers use very little power. And hold temp very well especially if they are full. Thats really not much of a load. You're talking maybe a couple KW with them all on.

I think the takeaway here is that the Westinghouse generators also seem to be a great product and have a good following.

Do you believe the fuel ratings that a vehicle manufacturer publishes or do you rely on some other sources (fuelly, personal experience, friends, etc - real world examples)?

The point is that any manufacturer has a vested interest to publish great specs...and i'm not saying they are incorrect. I'm simply saying - think for yourself.

There is no "standard" as far as i'm aware for the testing of efficiency with a generator. Example; oil weights, altitudes, octane ratings, stability of the test load, environmental temperature, could all affect the performance.
