...than the proofreading on the ad.

I was about to ask what the use case was for a 90w generator. But apparently, this isn't a 90w generator. [Linked Image]

Nor is the stated savings $11. It just gets better with each look.

These 900 watt 2-cycle units should never cost more than $89 USD

I still suspect it makes more heat and noise than it does electricity.

I bought one of those some years ago at Meijer for under $100 and started a thread on it. Changing the Torch spark plug didn't help. I got fed up with it and started a thread wanting to do an oil gas mix experiment using Wesson vegetable oil, but someone here acted like I should really give it to a person who needs a POS generator that might not start and stay running in an emergency for their oxygen machine or something.

I have a couple of older blue ones. Those are great! Mine ran our refrigerator and mom's oxygen concentrator at the same time. Used it @ night so that we did not have to hear my 4k industrial generator all night long. One of mine must have 400+ hrs on it by now.

I have the red version of this. I can say 900W is a pretty conservative estimate on it. I've had it sustaining well over that and pushing close to 1600 surge ...
