How to evaluate a used generator?
Rcpaul;95115 Wrote:I have had good luck with government liquidation web site. I purchased a mep 002a 5kw with 323 hours it is a diesel generator off of it for $850 just before sandy hit. I ran it for 6 days straight after sandy worked like a charm. It will run my whole house on about 8 gallons of diesel per 24 hours. Very happy with it

If I used fuel oil to heat my house, I would love a diesel generator. It would be great to have 400 gallons of fuel available to run it. Since my heat is NG, I'm definitely set on getting a tri-fuel setup. Just don't have the storage for a bunch of liquid fuel.
