Hi Stan, I get it at Wal-Mart. It's a little more expensive than the regular STA-BIL, but 1 oz treats 10 gallons of fuel so it lasts a long time.

Here's a link to the FAQ on Marine Formula STA-BIL:

Farm supply stores like Farm and Fleet have the best prices in my area, like 50% cheaper when on sale.

I have a 90 hp two stroke outboard jet motor that guzzles fuel so I grab it when on sale.

Enjoy things that money can buy IF you don't lose the things money can't buy.

I've been using my KIPOR 2000Ti for a while and absolutely love it, its quiet, reliable and starts on the first pull. It's roughly $4-500 less than the Honda/Yamaha with the same weight, and output. Just another alternative to consider...I am doing 4 x 5000mah batteries at 2C all day long.

Wouldn't a power meter (Sears) answer the question? It will tell you how much AC power your server supplies are demanding from a 120Vac source.

the kill-a-watt meter tells you how many AC amps/watts you are consuming.

Here is a link:

http://www.amazon.com/Kill-Watt-Ele...rds=kill+a+watt

I used this product extensively when researching and testing power supplies, chargers, connectors, and wires for both home charging stations and portable charging stations.

Adding a temperature gauge helps monitor system performance as well.

I now keep the kill a watt meter plugged into my generator at all times to peak at the demand the generator is seeing at any time.

Honda 2000
How many amps can I draw off a Honda 2000 with a 24v 1000w 47a P/S. My charger can only put out 30a (I-charger 306B), will 30a be too much draw from the 2000?

thanks for the advice.

Not a problem running one charger at full blast. Your power supply and charger place about a 1,200 watt load on the generator. No issue. Perfect set up.
