    You dont want to have that coil of wire where you hook in to the furnace,
    You will draw more current using more energy from your generator plus run
    the risk of melting the power cord in to a mass of gook and causing a fire.

    @TheSurvivalSummary after watch the entire video, you would be way ahead of
    the game converting it to a trifuel set up. Since you have Natural Gas,
    thats the way to go. Our city has issues with propane tanks too but its so
    easy to disguise a 100# or even a 420# tank :). I just from experience, its
    a real hassle rotating gas and filling up the truck every single night on
    the way help. Plus the cost of the metal cans is out of site. If we had
    Natural Gas, I’d be doing that.

    In SHTF, you should use your solar panels before you draw all that
    attention to yourself with those noisy generators. You have a Mossberg and
    other guns but that wont hold off an armed gang, who are hungry, and know
    that you probably have food if you have a generator. If they can’t shoot
    you out they’ll burn you out… better to just go incognito with Solar
    Panels.

    Just a month??? That’s nothing. This rig would only be good for a mild SHTF.

    Couple things- you have gone so far, why stop at exension cords? You could
    put an isolation xfer switch on the outside for the price of all those
    extensions cords and its way cleaner that all those cords strung all over
    the place, safer and more efficient. Also the hond eu2000 will not Run 26
    hours on one gallon I t will run around 12 I have one myself and the same
    Moeller external tank. angyals 269’s comments about the honda being loud
    are laughable, you dont know what you are talking about.

    To help maintain my Honda eu200i generator, I have an hour meter mounted
    with the Tac-Brac. You can find the Tac-brac on Ebay by entering the item
    number “250510930206” in the search box.

    @Angyal269 The generator sounded loud on the video because the video camera
    was so close to it. I have the same generator, and the exhaust from my
    neighbor’s furnace is louder. If I run the Honda behind my house, you can’t
    hear it from the curb. Anyone who hasn’t heard it for themselves doesn’t
    have a clue.

    Consider getting a diesel generator instead. You can run it on straight
    vegetable oil which is cheaper, safer, and easier to stock up on. You might
    find that you set yourself up for much more than twenty days with a diesel
    running on fry oil.

    Make sure you pull your meter from the wall when you turn that generator on
    so you dont back feed thru the utility transformer outside your home on the
    pole. You will Zap the Utility Company Lineman trying to get power to your
    home/neighborhood. The turn Ratio on the utility transformer is around
    31.75 (7620/240). Your generator at 120V * 31.75 = 3,810 Volts you will Zap
    him with BE CAREFUL……

    @MrB0TT that is a pain about the vapor pressure at low temperatures. I have
    found that ganging tanks together works pretty good. I gang 4 100#ers
    together and that works really good. but then again Gasoline and Diesel are
    worse at the temperatures that would cause propane to not have enough vapor
    pressure assuming 80% full tanks. A buried tank would really be nice. I
    wish I could get a backhoe up to my place :).

    You should be careful with the exhaust fumes so close to your doors and
    windows.

    listen it easier and simpler if you just plug an 6 to 8000 invertor or
    generator into any house outlet or the power grid near your electric meter
    and you have power all around …, try it. All the wires are not needed and
    you can use them for something else. Reasoning being there will no power
    and it will work .Plus even with normal power you are sub-supply the extra
    power into your power grid and lower your electric bill..tooo.

    @catexan either way, vegetable oil and olive oil are two of the most
    valuable things you can stock up on, IMO

    Here’s my problem. You’re losing alot with such long lines (resistance) and
    in a real life scenario, EVERYONE and your grandmother, and your friend’s
    grandmothers are going to be sitting in line for gasoline IF IT’S EVEN
    AVAILABLE. I would invest in a very good solar powered chrgd generator,
    seriously. The gas is fine in theory, but when the SHTF, you are not going
    to want to rely on gasoline. It’s coming too.

    You might want to consider installing an in-line fuel filter in between
    your extended tank and generator. Costs about $5 and will your EU2000
    running clean.

    Nice presentation but two things. First is where you have fuel, heat, power
    and a generator a fire extinguisher nearby is always a good idea. Second is
    that for about $4.00 (each) on eBay you can get the same fitting as on your
    boat gas tank so why not just tap the Jerry cans with the same fitting,
    then you don’t have to refill the boat gas tank, just swap tanks?

    You only run the generator 4 hours a day enough to charge your battery bank
    back up for led lights and to freez ice to keep the fridge cold a 2kw
    sollar set up would help a lot

    I like the idea of a backup generator.

    But emergency power shouldn’t be using Gasoline. I would rather build a
    waterwheel power system, they don’t rely on wind or the sun, that means
    24/7 off grid power. They come in all different sizes. You can even build a
    green house garden around it.

    Waterwheels can be made from something as simple as a bicycle wheel. You
    can build your own mini pond using pumps to create a running stream. I
    would study the waterwheels that the Noria Corporation made for inspiration
    on smaller versions.
