Description

Versatile power with peace of mind is yours with the Champion 6250-watt portable generator, which meets ANSI/PGMA G300-2018 requirements and features CO Shield™ - the Carbon Monoxide auto shutoff system. Dual Fuel technology allows the 389cc engine to safely operate on either gasoline or propane. (source: Champion (opens in a new tab))

Zoom on the Champion 100592

In a nutshell, the Champion 100592 is a portable generator mostly geared towards:

  • Food truck owners who do not wish to see their business interrupted under any circumstances
  • Homeowners who want to be sure of their ability to power their fridges, cooking tools, heating and lighting equipment during power failures
  • Professionals who want to ensure that a power failure will not prevent them from working

The following sections will present you in detail its power characteristics, the different outlets it offers, its overall portability, the extra features it benefits from, and any relevant emission compliance details.

Power & Run Time

The Champion 100592 in use

The Champion 100592

The dual-fuel technology of the Champion 100592 allows for an output of 120/240V and provides superb power and versatility. If gasoline-powered, the device provides a running wattage of 6,250W and a starting wattage of 7,850W. If propane-powered, it gives 5,600 rated watts and 7,050 starting watts.

The generator features a simple traditional pull-start mechanism. It is rated for a noise of 74 dBA (just slightly more noisy than a dishwasher).

The 100592, with a fuel capacity of 6 gallons, reaches a run time of around 10 hours at 50% load utilizing gasoline (fuel consumption around 0.6 GPH). Alternatively, it can reach a run time of around 6.5 hours (on a 20 lbs tank - propane consumption around 0.72 GPH) with propane.

The powering of sensitive electronic devices with the 100592 is not recommended due to its high THD (<20%).

Outlets

The control panel includes the following 5 AC outlets:

Two Duplexes 120V 20A (5-20R) GFCI
120/240V 30A (L14-30R) receptacle

As it features a twist-lock L14-30R receptacle, the 100592 is transfer switch ready: in case of a power outage, you will be easily able to connect it to a breaker box and power your household.

Portability

The Champion 100592 has the following dimensions: L27 x W27.7 x H24.4 in. In combination with its conventional, open frame design, they provide support and allow the generator to be raised above ground level. The generator is designed for ideal use outdoors and in rough environments.

Since the generator weighs 162.5 lbs, it will be incredibly difficult to manually lift it and transport it, even though it is technically considered to 'be portable' (in the sense that it is movable). However, its challenging mobility is solved by its wheel kit (⌀8") and its folding handle, which will ease its displacement, once it is on the floor.

Features

The 100592's control panel

The control panel of the 100592 includes an Intelligauge meter, which displays voltage, frequency and lifetime hours, helpful for the monitoring of its status and activity.

As far as security is concerned, the generator can be used with a peace of mind, as it features an overload protection (circuit breaker) and an automatic low oil shut-off. Champion's built-in surge protector (Volt Guard™) safeguards your equipment and appliances against voltage spikes.

The unit also benefits from the CO Shield™ technology, which monitors accumulation of poisonous carbon monoxide (CO) gas produced by the engine's exhaust when the generator is running. If CO Shield™ detects elevated levels of CO gas, it automatically shuts off the engine and illuminates a red LED.

With the basic documentation and an owner's manual (opens in a new tab), letting you start the generator quickly, the Champion 100592 also comes with several accessories, including: propane hose and funnel. The official storage cover and running cover are also available, as separate purchases.

Emissions

The Champion 100592 is EPA-approved and CARB-compliant. Therefore, its sale and purchase are permitted in all of the 50 states, including California.

Moreover, it features a spark arrestor and therefore, can be used in forested areas.

The unit also meets the ANSI/PGMA G300-2018 safety and performance requirements.

The Champion 100592 versus other generators

The following charts are provided to give you an idea of how some of the key specs of the Champion 100592 compare to dual fuel generators of similar power (between 5500 and 6500 W).

  • At a weight of 162.5 pounds, the Champion 100592 places in the expected weight range of the dual fuel generators in the 5500-6500 rated wattage range. Regarding dry weight, one of the champions in the same power range is the Pulsar PGDA70BiSCO, with a dry weight of only 118 lbs.
  • This generator has a somewhat average expected noise for its type and power range, rated at 74 dBA. For those who are looking for a less noisy device, we suggest the Pulsar PGDA70BiSCO. With just 62 dBA, it is one of the most quiet devices in this power range.
  • The 100592, offering a run time of around 10 hours with a full tank at a 50% load, falls within the average autonomy range when compared to its peers. If you consider autonomy on a single full tank as one of the deciding factors, one of the generators in the same power range that offers the highest run time is the Firman H05753, with around 12 hours.
  • Run times are important, yet thanks to their dependence on the fuel capacity, they should be judged along with the fuel consumption of the device. As this generator uses an estimated 0.6 GPH (gallon per hour) at a 50% load, it finds itself in the average gasoline consumption range of similar products. If fuel consumption is your top priority, we suggest to check out the Pulsar PGDA70BiSCO, which has a fuel consumption of only 0.42 GPH and thus, is one of the most efficient devices in our database.

Price comparison

As you can see from these interactive charts, when compared to other 5500-6500W dual fuel generators, the Champion 100592 is on the average side of the price range.

Therefore, this generator nicely fits in the expected budget for this kind of product.

What is the THD rating for the 100592 Inverter generator? (Asked September 28, 2019)

The 100592 is not an inverter generator. It's THD will be around 12-20%, depending on load applied.

Can you run an electric dryer? (Asked February 20, 2021)

The approximate wattage required for starting an electric clothes dryer is 6750 watts and the approximate wattage for running it is 5400. If your dryer has similar wattages, and runs on 240V, the 100592 should be able to run it. Remember that these are approximate values. You should determine the actual running and starting watts of your appliance.

What type of gasoline can be used in this generator? should i be using non ethinol gas? (Asked June 05, 2022)

Gasoline should be clean, fresh, and unleaded with a minimum octane rating of 87 and an ethanol content of 10% or less by volume.

Great generator, powers my whole camper, AC,refridgerator, heat, lights, radio, everything at once. I lost all the extra attachments to use the propane. Where can I purchase them? Thanks for your time. (Asked April 13, 2023)

The LPG hose + regulator part number is 77300-YJ70110-0000. It can be purchased directly from Champion (opens in a new tab).

    Got this at home depot for a clearance price, it was worth the buy. I used this generator as a hurricane precaution for energy outages.

    Does what it says and at a decent price. Easy to assemble and use. I wish the fuel tank was larger at 7.7 gal, but it does allow propane gas as an alternative fuel source. It does run about 10 hours at 50-60 energy capacity. So far satisfied with it at a total of 40 hours of use.

    + PROS:
    • Dual fuel
    • Does run 10 hours at 50-60 capacity
    • Easy to use
    • Safety prevention measure (low oil shut off, GFCI receptacles)
    • Decent bang for your buck
    - CONS:
    • Fuel capacity tank is low at 7.7 gal
    • Need to treat fuel for better energy consumption/output
    • No electrical start-up
