    I thought some people might be interested in this. I purchased the Honda 2000i generator yesterday and hooked it up this morning to see what it would do. I wanted it to run my large refrigerator freezer, my pellet stove, TV and a three way lamp which has a 150 watt bulb in it. I hooked everything up and it didn't even rev up and try to work harder in economy mode. Just ran along super quiet and didn't bog down at all. Sometime I'll have to keep plugging more stuff in just to see when it will start working hard. First pull starting and rated at about 9 hours per gallon I am one happy camper. It surpassed all my expectations.
    Not bragging but just thought that if anyone out there was thinking of buying a generator they might be interested in reading this. It cost $192.00.

    No mistake. This guy is 2000 watts weighs 48 pounds and is mainly made for campers but as far as I'm concerned it works just great in my house. $192.00.

    Where did you get it from? They are great little machines, but new ones are normally a little over a grand. If it's a genuine Honda, I'd grab one in a second for $192!

    There are quite a few places online that will sell it for that. There's one that even has free shipping.

    Good price, good unit, for awhile Honda was not letting dealers such as Northern Tool advertise prices, but see more now..

    Paid $850 for mine a few years back. Was a no brainer.

    Tip- put a kill-a-watt meter to see how many watts (Volt Amps is even better) and never exceed 80% of either rating...

    Well to tell the truth I have had a couple of beers but I owe my mistake more to the fact that at 77 years I'm just plain losing losing it. AH THE GOLDEN YEARS

    Age has nothing to do with it. There's just too much information to absorb out there.

    God Will I like the way you think. I'm going to have another beer (the new Bud Black Crown) and then I'm going to try my best to rock on. Getting harder to rock on every year though.

    I've had mine for 6-7 years now... just don't let it sit with fuel in it for a long period of time. Those hondas are kick ass, but those carbs are tempramental. Mine will run the A/C all all the accessories on my little RV, (but not the microwave and AC at same time). Love it and would buy another one again. Thing runs forever on a tank of fuel.

    Most local shops will try to match internet pricing if you ask them to. They can't always but they can and will usually do better if pushed. My theory is I'd rather buy local and pay a bit more, and then I have no problem taking the product back to the local place for service. I tell 'em that too. I'm not looking to kill 'em on a deal, just take care of me and I'll be back. Works most every time. EU2000i's go for $1000 to $1050 when sold for best price. I love EU2000i's, IMHO, the best small generator made. Yamaha is comparable too but they don't have the market that Honda has. I can't say enough about Honda's little gem. There are some very neat accessories as well. Look into an extended run fuel tank. The damned things will run for days with no attention setup that way.
