The generator needs to have a break-in period before it will run as well as it can, so ignore the YouTube video of the guy who pulls the generator out of the package, adds oil and gas and then immediately slaps a full load on it and it bogs down. This will happen on any generator that's not been broken in (whether done at the factory or needs to be done by the customer), not just this one! LOL
The break-in procedure I did emulated the "MotoMan" dyno run type engine break-in. The generator certainly ran better towards the end of the break-in, with more power and stability. Here are the steps I took:
Small 4-Stroke Generator Break-in Procedure
1. Fill engine with break-in oil (I used Royal Purple 11487 High Performance Engine Break-in Oil - 1 qt. )
2. Add gas to tank (no additives or stabilizers at this time)
3. Start engine (per the manufacturer's published procedures)
4. Allow engine to warm up (ECO off, 5-10 minutes as needed)
5. After engine has warmed up, increase load and cycle 3 times at 40%-60% capacity, shut off and cool for 15 minutes
6. Start up and increase load, cycle 3 times at 40%-80% capacity, shut off and cool for 15 minutes
7. Start up and increase load, cycle 3 times at 30%-100% capacity (use Eco mode for this), shut off and cool for 15 minutes
8. Drain oil & refill with conventional 10w-30 oil (I used the oil that came with the generator for this)
9. Run a full tank or two of gas with normal use
10. Drain oil and refill with synthetic oil 10w-30 (Amsoil 4-Stroke Small Engine Oil is what I used, Shell Rotella T6 is also a good choice and easier to find), use this oil from now on
10a. Change spark plug, if so inclined, and ensure you check the gap and use anti-seize on the threads (I used a platinum spark plug, though they are harder to find for this engine).
11. Use a fuel stabilizer when storing with fuel in the tank, and for any extra fuel (I use PRI-G Fuel Stabilizer PRI-G-16-A, 16 oz for this, been using it for years and it just works no matter how old the gas is).
Hooked it up to my travel trailer and it ran the 15,000 BTU ac with no issues.
Continuing, I used the purple oil. Ran the burn-in. Replaced the oil with the manufacturers oil and ran it for 6 hours (varied load from 1600 watts to 600 watts to no-load). Tank ran empty. Replaced oil again with Pennzoil Platinum Synthetic 10W-30 oil (yeah, I know, people get particular with the type of Synthetic oil, use what you like).
Works good and handles full load at 1600 watts tested to 2000 watts. It handles full 1600 watts and voltage remains 120VAC or above. Above 1600 watts the voltages dips to 105VAC when it reaches 2000 watts.I noticed during transient loading from say 500 watts to 1500 watts, the voltage dips as low as 75 VAC RMS looking at it with Fluke 87 DMM in min/max mode without the economy mode on. I don't know what the standard is for the other brands of inverter generators but I don't think that would hurt electronics as it a quick recovery.
I give it 4 stars as it starts easy and gives the power out as advertised. I deducted a star from 5 as it runs rough at no or little load. The sound of the missing at light load is irritating if it's close by but easily ignored from a distance. It's possible that the no-load missing may subside with more use. Also, the stickers on the generator were pealing off right out of the shipping box. They won't last long but most of them are only ornamental, Some of the stickers do have info though. Keep the manual...
About the only thing in James Lummel's post that I didn't follow is the use of PRI-G gas treatment. It's expensive, the value is questionable and it only holds gas stable for 12 months with some reviews suggesting it doesn't work for a stabilizer. Buy Sta-bil gas treatment to treat your gas. It lasts 24 months and the application is designed for small gas containers. PRI-G says 1 oz for 16 gallons. I carry a 5 gallon container for my generator.
I'll update the review if changes in operation occur.
