Yeah, this is getting a bit OT, but it is nice to be able to keep
communications going when the power is out.

>From the manufacturer's (Yamaha) website:

   Inverter System with Pulse Width Modulation - Industry-leading
   system produces higher-quality and cleaner electricity. Results in
   pure sine wave as clean or cleaner than commercial power and can
   operate products with built in microcomputers.

I have the Honda EU2000i (I believe they make the same claim) plus a Xantrex
Prosine 2 (2 kW sine wave inverter) plus a (very) large deep cycle battery.
Have about one week's worth of treated (stabilized) gas. Every month or so,
I dump one can in the truck and get fresh and add the fuel stabilizer to it.
