  1 Question
Q: can this generator be setup to run duel fuel (gas/propane) and still have the remote start?
by Ev from Massachusetts on June 30, 2016

A: This generator is designed to run on gas only. If you try to convert it to another gas you would void the warranty of the unit.

If you are interested in converting this unit we would recommend calling Champion at 877-338-0999.

Thank you

My Hunting Buddy's Begged Me Not To Buy It! Boy, Were They Wrong
Our "hunting camp/family reunions" every year in the Upper Deschutes of Oregon consists of a couple dozen people and a bunch of RV's and generators, ALL of them are the "RED" generators, all except mine. I have been through three different gens in the past 5 years, all of them failed for one reason or another. EVERYONE told me,"go buy the RED one and it will be the last gen you ever own, blah blah blah!" Well, I am a rebel I guess, when my Father-in-Law looked... more
Pros: I'd Buy It Again, Features, Quiet, Exceeded Expectations
Cons: Useless wheels, needs bigger tank

Works Great For Its Price
I looked at getting 2 Hondas and run together for my rv, purchased this for half the cost and does the job, still on the break in period. Runs my a/c and 2 fridges, all lights and tv with no issues. Just a tad louder than I would like but still quiet enough to use in the campground.

Works Great! Smooth Power!
Very good generator. Powers my 30 foot camper with ease. Almost as quiet as the red ones. The remote control feature is pretty cool, but really don't use it that much.
Pros: Price, Easy To Use, I'd Buy It Again, Features
Cons: No hour meter

Biggest Bang For Your Bucks! Outstanding Piece Of Equipment!!
Love my Champion 3100 watt generator!! After reading reviews for days I decided to go with this generator mainly because of so many good reviews. I will have to say that it does everything expected. Starts with ease, whether you use the key fob, electric start or the pull rope. Ran all of my appliances in our camper including our 15,000 btu a/c and our portable ice maker as well, all while on economy mode. I never tried the a/c and microwave at the same time, due to the fact that I usually trip... more

Impressive
Here in ‘hurricane alley’, it is not a luxury to own a capable genset to ride out a power loss. Keeping perishables cold, a few lights, TV, microwave, router and phone charged is all in a days work and done quietly. The remote is particularly handy for stops and starts without a trip outside. Unit arrived on time and well packed. First impression as the product was removed from the box was one of satisfaction as I saw the build quality for the first time. I did go through a 5 hour run-in... more
Pros: Price, Quiet, Easy To Use, Easy To Store
Cons: No fuel gage, No hour meter, Needs larger wheels

So Far So Good
I really like the remote start and stop. Just beyond the break in period and haven't really loaded her up yet but have no doubt she can handle it. Plan to also replace the spark plug to a NGK small engines do seem to run better with them over stock. She will miss fire sputter every once in a while however all small engines do but a NKG usually fixes that.

Very happy with the Champion inverter.
Pros: Price, Quiet, Easy To Use, I'd Buy It Again
Cons: No fuel gage, No hour meter

Great Product!
Generator worked as advertised. Simple set up and easy to run. Wish it had a larger fuel capacity, under medium load it ran out of fuel about every 4 hours.
Pros: Easy To Use, Features, High Quality, Reliable
Cons: small fuel capacity
