I think having a generator and a thousand hours of fuel would be excellent if I could afford it
. But my prepping budget is extremely limited.
And with these liabilities...
-Exhaust that must be vented outside, which means that sound will also occur outside.
-If you do have a generator, its use will need to be minimized; because the more you use it, the more evidence you will generate. If you have lights,
you'll need to black out windows. If you run a a/c, it will generate a signature noise, as will a dryer. Anything more than a refrigerator and maybe
a microwave will soon become obvious.
-liquid fuel is bulky and heavy, and a fire hazard. LPG tanks are easy to spot, and an advertisement that you have energy.
-The larger the generator, the more frequently it will need to be serviced, and the more fuel it will consume. Eventually, you'll have to discontinue
it, and what then? If you are going to prepare for being without electricity in 3 days, or a week, or a month, why not just prepare for it now, and
put your effort into something other than preserving an expensive hallmark of civilization?
