"I purchased and installed this unit with a separate 500 gal Propane tank. I estimate I would be able to get about 7 days with that amount of Propane. I have not had any long term outages since I installed this generator, but I can tell you it has worked flawlessly for the few twenty minute to half hour outages. Once was when I was getting ready to go to work and had not yet taken a shower. Would have been a huge inconvenience if not for this generator. I have battery back UPS on my electronics, so if the power goes out, the TV and Computers stay up and running, all the lights go out for a little over thirty seconds and then the Generator takes over, automatically. Simply Awesome. Installation takes some work but with a little thought is very do Able, for some one with a little electrical background. Much of the installation is pre-wired and color coded. I had the gas connected and tested by the propane company after I ran all the lines. The security of this machine is well worth the money I spent. Before purchasing this size unit, I had a Generator sales men from another company tell me I was requesting too small a generator for my load. Hmmmm, You don't run every thing at the same time. It is easy to add up the wattage of those items that must be on or would likely be on. My Air conditioner is the only problem load. I turn it off if we will not be at home. For a solution to this, I would recommend the Load prioritizer this company sells over buying a bigger Generator, which will just eat up more fuel."
