As the Honda EU3000iS and the Generac GP3000i do not share the same manufacturer, their overall build and technology in use can vary.

Power Comparison

The following charts are provided to show you at a glance how the main specs of the Generac GP3000i compare to the Honda EU3000iS.

  • Engine: The 196cc engine of the Honda EU3000iS is significantly bigger than the Generac GP3000i's engine, which has a displacement of 149cc.
  • Power: With a running wattage of 2800 W, the Honda EU3000iS will allow to power more appliances and tools than the 2300 running watts of the Generac GP3000i. However, as the 2 generators have the same starting watts (3000 W), they will both give you the same boost needed to start the motor of your most demanding appliances.
  • Runtime: When loaded to 25% of their max capacity, the Honda EU3000iS offers a higher runtime on a full tank than the Generac GP3000i: it can operate for up to 20 hours, whereas the Generac GP3000i offers a maximum runtime of 5.8 hours.
  • Fuel Efficiency: With a gasoline consumption at 25% load of 0.17 GPH (gallon per hour), the Honda EU3000iS 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 Honda EU3000iS) and are therefore perfectly suitable to safely power your sensitive electronic devices.

Portability Comparison

  • Bulkiness: With dimensions of L22.2" x W13.3" x H18.4", the Generac GP3000i offers a much more compact experience of power generation than the Honda EU3000iS and its L25.9" x W17.6" x H22".
  • Weight: Weighing 59.5 lbs, the GP3000i is much lighter than the 130.7 lbs of the EU3000iS.
  • Portability: The Generac GP3000i has a standard handle and the Honda EU3000iS a double handle, to help you better manipulate them.

Feature Comparison

  • Starting System: While these two devices can both start thanks to a conventional pull-start mechanism, the Honda EU3000iS has the advantage of also being able to get running via a convenient electric starter.
  • Outlets: The Generac GP3000i and the Honda EU3000iS both offer 3 AC outlets. None of them feature GFCI outlets. The former also offers a DC output. In addition, it is worth noting that they both only produce 120V. For more detailed information regarding all their respective receptacles, refer to the Generac GP3000i's and the Honda EU3000iS's product pages.
  • Fuel Gauge: Thanks to a fitted fuel gauge, the Honda EU3000iS provides instant visibility of the fuel level.
  • Technology: The Honda EU3000iS benefits from a welcomed additional security feature: its CO Minder technology monitors carbon monoxide and automatically shuts off the generator if the ambient levels become unsafe.
