Now that my little harbor freight generator is running nicely again I am using it to top off my tiny house battery bank. I have it connected to a battery charger through an extension cord.
The little HF generator is actually running better than ever before. I am surprised and cannot believe what is happening here.
It only ran about 5 hours on a gallon of gas before. Even with no load it only ran 5 hours before running out of gas.
Now that I patched it up, it ran 10 hours that very same night. I used it for about 2 hours and then shut off the battery charger and left the generator running. I figured it would run out of gas and stall out.
In the morning, ten hours later it was still running. I actually used the battery charger for one of those hours before the little generator finally ran out of gas.
That is an incredible amount of hours on a single gallon of gas. I dont know why it is to much improved now but it sure is better.
Now I can top off my battery bank as needed with the little – and now more efficient – harbor freight 800 watt 2 cycle generator.
I got some packages in the mail from IrishKitty from youtube. I knew it was from her because she said some packages were coming from China.
Baby cat loves her new toy a lot. Thank you 🙂
