bigger generator cost more to operate, and are heavier.

Compared to a small honda, which may or may not have enough umph to start a 15k Btu AC, it's still cheaper. Plus the added advantage of being able to run on 15a A/C line, and charge the battery.
The EZ start in my RV won't help me when I need to start the room AC in my sticks and bricks when the electricity goes out; or my furnace, my sump pump, my refrigerator, etc. Single purpose use for an EZ start compared to multi purpose use for more watts.

I think that the larger engine in the Honda means it doesn't have to work so hard which is one of the reasons they are quiet.

Quick question about engine displacement between the newer 2200 watt inverter generators. The Yamaha says 80cc and the Honda says 121cc. The Handa has 50 % more displacement than the Yamaha. If this is true, wouldn't the Yamaha have to run at a good bit higher rpm to put out the same power. If true I cant believe they would both last the same amount of engine hours. Any thoughts?


Wouldn't a bigger engine use more gas?

Sort of. It's more about HP, which is why a twin turbo engine uses just as much gas as it's big brother V8, when towing, because it takes the same amount of HP.
