I live at the edge of civilization. The power for my house comes from another county over one of the roughest passes in the Bay Area so with every car accident and tree fall I loose power a couple of times a year. With the wife having to stock mama milk for the kid I want to be able to run a fridge, at least one lamp, and a space heater. I don't need to run a furnace or the whole house since this is cool Mediterranean Climate CA. I am looking for something quiet, dependable, and preferably can last at least 8-12 hours on one tank.
