Re: Generator Time!!!

I have gas appliances, so it would be business as usual here.

We got a generator after Irene and we needed to use it after last October's snow storm. Good thing I got it too as there was a ham radio contest that weekend and I would have been off the air had I not gotten my generator.

Guess what? There's one this weekend too, but it looks like Sandy will miss it completely.

If your generator runs on gasoline, make sure you have a few cans full. I have 30 gallons stored in the barn, away from the house. Fresh gas from a few weeks ago with Sta-Bil marine formula. Should be enough for a few days continuous running, or more than a week with part time use.

I doubt power will be out that long.

Don't forget to keep some oil on hand for oil changes too because if you're running your genny for a long time you need to change its oil.
