...now at 73 hours on the LCD/LED display

Powering 3 heatpumps, 3 refrigerators, keeping house cool at 74 F, running mostly at 2720 rpm and 1500 VA

The only item turned off was water heater, everything else is powered on

Will likely do an oil change by Thursday

My thoughts exactly! What kind of amperage do those heat pumps pull?

Very nice, how much gas a day do you use?
I run 1 fridge and a chest freezer on my yamaha EF3000ise plus the TV, sat receiver, internet. You have be careful stepping the fridge and freezer in separately, but after that I run it on eco mode and it has no trouble kicking in a freezer while running the rest of the stuff.

Costco has been supplying gas, stocked up before IRMA

Generator uses about 4 gallons every 6 hours.

All motors are DC, inclusive of pool pump, fridges, heat pumps and the Generator itself, so no issue with all running as max power would never exceed 4kw, the Mitsus run full throttle using just 900 watts and can cool a room to 68 F in 15 minutes.

Dude, I am super impressed with your mad electrical skillz. cool

If all motors are DC, how are you getting the power back from AC? Just curious...

What oil does that take and what will you run?

That is awesome.....do you have this hooked up to your circuit breaker with a transfer switch or how are you running it all?

Honda inverts DC to 240 volt AC power, all motors are wired at 240 volt to utility connection.

Manual transfer switch on service box outside flips power on/off between utility and generator.

A single 30 amp breaker is all that is needed on the main service line to turn this on/off

Honda recommends 10W30 but I use whatever is on hand and had used last oil change Mobil 0W40

How much oil does it consume / how often do you have to add oil?


Boy will I be happy when ALL vehicles on public roads are autonomous.
