I know a person that ran his Honda 2000i for about five YEARS without stopping except for maintenance.

Only that... it seems like an absurd waste of energy! How long would it take to bring the temperature inside to bearable if you left it off all day? I don't want to be critical... but sometimes... It just begs to ask the obvious question. We... (me included) are a wasteful bunch here in the US of A.
i would agree that it is wasteful, but when heading out to it in 105 degree weather in a suit and tie and having it be 95+ degrees inside, it takes hours to cool that thing down. that is not to mention all your groceries that are sitting in there an exposed to that heat.

Thanks for everyoneís 2c, I appreciate it. My situation is I work in a downtown area so drive it to work, park it out in a paid lot and walk a few blocks to my building. If it were just directly outside Iíd fire it up mid-day as suggested but I canít leave the office and itís too far away. Iíd rather pay the cost of running the genny all day than die in the heat after work in a suit. I normally run it the whole time Iím on the road since it wouldnít otherwise be used much and I know it NEEDS to be used. Most our trips are 3-5 hours though so if never put it up to a whole day. Glad to know 12 hours+ is only scratching the surface of what it can do.
