  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

Champion 100261 - 3100 Watt Electric Start Inverter Generator
Only have had the generator for 5 weeks but extremely pleased so far. Followed the instructions, which are easy to follow, for the break in period. A few days later took it to a car show an provided power for the DJs equipment and several cooking items with no problem, all day long. Comments were made that the generator was almost as quiet as the Honda 3000eu, what we normally used. The built in wheels really makes it easy to move around.

Only time will tell on dependability so far... more

Ok, So Far...
Haven't had time to use it much. Just changed the oil. It's heavier than I wanted and it's louder than I would like. For almost twice the price, I could have gotten a quieter, lighter Honda. :) The remote start works perfectly. I have had 3 back surgeries and can't lift it into my pickup, so I've rigged a block and tackle in my garage. Only problem is that there's really no good way to secure a sling. The lifting handles bend dangerously. I use a towing strap wrapped endwise under the... more

Perfect Generator!
Like many of you reading this, I shopped online and read reviews in my down time till I was blue in the face. I have a 33' Toy Hauler that gets a lot of use dry camping at motocross races and though the 5500 watt Generac I have is a great unit for emergency home use, it was far, far too loud for camping. Not to mention annoying other campers who spent the $$ for a quiet Gen.

I set out with my sights on a red or blue generator since many of my race buds use them and they are obviously top... more
Pros: Exceeded Expectations, Price, Features, Quiet

Great Product
We looked around a lot at Honda ect but for the money this generator was the right ticket we own a 21 foot Mini Light trailer with all the conveniences including a 13,500 BTU AC unit and this generator runs the AC just great. The remote start button is just awesome the very first time we started up the unit one push and it started right up. Both of us ladies are over 65 and to not have to use a pull cord to start it was a real plus, Have only used it once but we are extremely happy with how... more

My wife and I attended a college football game and after setting up our RV I setup our Champion 3100 run watts generator and the real fun begun. It was amazing how our Champion performed it powered our outside kitchen, a 15000 BTU air conditioner and the microwave...And the generator did not go into OVERLOAD! Great product, not to mention the effortless start with the remote wireless start.
