    There's always something isn't there? There's me thinking of having an Efoy fitted when we change the van and something else comes along.

    Claimed decibel levels are, perhaps, a bit lower than those claimed by Honda but still might be intrusive.

    Given the pricing I think the Efoy is still more attractive, especially as it will only be a backup to solar and (possibly) VAWT.

    Perhaps Chris would like to purchase and test both the EG20 and Efoy over the next couple of months using his existing one as a control :BigGrin:

    The 3 grand fitted price puts me of that onboard Genny. Why not just put a cheap Hyundi electric start genny in a soundproofed locker and vent the exaust? Cost about £600

    Dealers are a bit few and far between aren't they - but it gives a few more options for visiting places in the van when new supplies are needed :Smile:

    Warning

    If you are thinking of taking up this option you will notice that the company offer hook up etc, don't stray off the site! it is not in a very nice area and is next to the insurance dreaded B9 & B10 areas of Brum. :Eek!:

    Hi Chris at 3k I would want it to run on fresh air :Laughing: Just how much do you need one ?do you run out of battery power now ?If the answer is no then my thoughts are you are wasting your money on something you want rather than need.

    BTW Jims idea is a better/cheaper option IF you need it.:BigGrin:

    Surely, Chris, you're not admitting that your little genny is a tad noticeable are you? :Rofl1::Rofl1:

    A lot more expensive that a small honda..not much quieter

    and at least with the honda you can use it around the house etc.
