I checked my sound app and 68db is normal conversation. My tv siting 6 ft away was set at 64-68 db sound level. My generator at full power 4000 watt is rated at 68db. Not inverter unit.
Why are we paying so much for a variation of 53db sound level.

There is no such thing as eliminating ethanol. There is a gallon of the crap with every 9 gallons of gasoline. Do not believe that a little bit of snake oil will do much of anything to that gallon of Corn Lobby stuff.

The ryobi is also about half the cost of the Honda. Anyone have any input? Thanks in advance!
As others have said I vote for honda, I've had the EU2000i for 7 years now, and it still runs like brand new.

However others on IRV2 also swear by this generator. I agree it has some cool features like
a remote control to start and stop the generator, plus it very powerful.

I own a Ryobi 2000 watt. It generates 1600 watts continuous. I've owned my unit for 13 months. I purchased it to use periodically, when I travel from Maine to Florida and back again.

I use it in the event that I want to run my coffee maker during stops at Wally-worlds or truck stops with no facilities. For this use it's fine.

My brother-in-law owns a Honda 2000 watt. He uses it to run his pellet stove when the power goes out.

His Honda unit runs quieter then mine. Although, mine is a bit louder it runs what I intended it to be used for.

All this depends on what you're looking for and whether a louder unit will work for you.
