You would need 100 gallons of fuel for like 4 days. Holy smokes!!! You need drums vs jugs for this bad boy.
you know you wouldn't have to run it 24/7 right?

That is indeed the dilemma with this size of generator, at least for a residential backup use case. It'll run your electric dryer, stove, or water heater, but the rest of the time - when you're just running lights/fridge/modem - you're still guzzling a bunch of fuel.

I have a 3500w generator that will run 12 hours on 3-4 gallons. It won't run the dryer or oven (I have a gas water heater), but it has no problem with the lights, two fridges, various electronics, and a window AC. Might need to turn off everything except the fridges if you want to run a coffee pot or microwave. IMO a more sensible option overall than one of these "beasts".

I dont disagree but as a homeowner with the 10k peak version and smaller units weren't running the furnace, fridge, freezer, well pump, etc. So I didn't have a lot of options besides a much more expensive standby. We had to use it for a week last year and it wasn't great with fuel but it was great all week. Following recommended oil change intervals I think I did 2 oil changes that week based on hours! Just looked it up and the 10000 peak 8500 running load dual fuel was 499 back in 2016 when we got ours, fwiw
