I used $ 550 of gasoline during Sandy in 9 days.
Even my 7Kw Generac uses to much gas thus the purchase of the little Honda 2000. 125 watts for TV / entertaiment center , 130 watts total for both computers,modem,wireless router, Net Phone , which leaves 1300 to be shared between two refrigerators and microwave as needed. Generac can be ran for a couple of hours from time to time for water heater and such. Propane space heaters for emergency heat.We camp so have Coleman stove ,laterns and such. 7Kw unit was required at my former location to run our well but have county water here and my 5HP Honda powered pumping station down at the branch.
