As the GP3000i and the GP2200i 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 GP3000i compare to the Generac GP2200i.

  • Power: With a running wattage of 2300 W, the Generac GP3000i will allow to power more appliances and tools than the 1700 running watts of the Generac GP2200i. Moreover, compared to the 2200 starting watts of the GP2200i, the GP3000i and its starting wattage of 3000 W will give more power to start the appliances which require an additional boost to get their motor running.
  • Runtime: When loaded to 25% of their max capacity, the GP2200i offers a higher runtime on a full tank than the GP3000i: it can operate for up to 10.75 hours, whereas the GP3000i offers a maximum runtime of 5.8 hours.
  • Fuel Efficiency: With a gasoline consumption at 25% load of 0.11 GPH (gallon per hour), the GP2200i is more fuel efficient than the Generac GP3000i and its 0.18 GPH. The former's operation will therefore cost less in terms of the money spent on gasoline. Inverter generators like these 2 are of the most fuel efficient (and quiet) type.
  • THD: Both generators offer a low THD (<3% for the Generac GP3000i and <3% for the Generac GP2200i) and are therefore perfectly suitable to safely power your sensitive electronic devices.

Portability Comparison

  • Bulkiness: With dimensions of L19.7" x W11.4" x H17.9", the Generac GP2200i offers a much more compact experience of power generation than the Generac GP3000i and its L22.2" x W13.3" x H18.4".
  • Weight: The GP2200i and its 46.6 lbs is somewhat lighter than the 59.5 lbs of the GP3000i.
  • Portability: Both offer a handle, which improves your grip when you wish to move them around.

Feature Comparison

  • Starting System: Both devices can get running via a conventional pull-start mechanism.
  • Outlets: The GP3000i offers a higher amount of AC receptacles than the GP2200i: the former benefits from 3 AC outlets, whereas the latter has 2 AC outlets. None of them feature GFCI outlets. Both of them also feature a DC output. For more detailed information regarding all their respective receptacles, refer to the GP3000i's and the GP2200i's product pages.
