This is the fourth day without power at my house and its going to be a long time before it gets restored. Things are normal for the most part once we got used to the rhythm of feeding the generator. Mine seems to run about 18 hours on 6 gallons of gas. I've been really busy hooking up generators for people who bought them after the power went out. For the most part I've only been able to get their furnace and sump pumps running because they didn't buy the cord and plug needed to do a back-feed so they could run their whole house.
