As the XT8500EFI and the GP9200E are both Generac generators, they benefit from the same level of quality and attention to detail.

Power Comparison

The following charts are provided to show you at a glance how the main specs of the Generac XT8500EFI compare to the Generac GP9200E.

  • Power: With a running wattage of 9200 W, the Generac GP9200E will allow to power more appliances and tools than the 8500 running watts of the Generac XT8500EFI. Moreover, compared to the 10000 starting watts of the XT8500EFI, the GP9200E and its starting wattage of 11250 W will give more power to start the appliances which require an additional boost to get their motor running.
  • Runtime: When running at a 50% load, the XT8500EFI enjoys a higher approximate runtime on a full tank than the GP9200E. It can deliver power for around 9 hours, whereas the GP9200E will be able to power your appliances for around 8.5 hours.
  • Fuel Efficiency: With a gasoline consumption at 50% load of 0.93 GPH (gallon per hour), the GP9200E is less fuel efficient than the Generac XT8500EFI with its 0.89 GPH. The latter will therefore be more economic to run than the former.

Portability Comparison

  • Bulkiness: When compared, the Generac XT8500EFI and its dimensions of L31.4" x W20.5" x H26.5" offer a slightly more compact experience than the L27.2" x W27" x H26.5" of the Generac GP9200E.
  • Weight: With a weight of 213 lbs, the GP9200E is slightly less heavy than the XT8500EFI (which weighs 214 lbs).
  • Portability: Both products benefit from a wheel kit, which greatly enhances their maneuverability. Both offer a folding handle, which improves your grip when you wish to move them around.

Feature Comparison

  • Starting System: Both devices can be started either via a pull-start mechanism or an electric starter.
  • EFI: The Generac XT8500EFI benefits from an Electronic Fuel Injection (EFI) system, which enhances its engine's reliability, lowers its fuel consumption, improves its startup, reduces its servicing, boosts its stale fuel resistance, and offers better altitude adaptability.
  • Outlets: The XT8500EFI and the GP9200E both offer 5 AC outlets. They also both feature GFCI outlets. In addition, it is worth noting that they can both produce either 120 or 240V. For more detailed information regarding all their respective receptacles, refer to the XT8500EFI's and the GP9200E's product pages.
  • Data Center & Fuel Gauge: Each of these 2 portable generators is equipped with a data center allowing you to conveniently monitor some aspects of the power output. Besides that, these 2 products are fitted with a fuel gauge allowing to see their fuel level at a glance.
