The Champion Power Equipment 200967 3500-Watt Dual Fuel Portable Generator is the perfect combination of versatility and convenience. (source: Champion (opens in a new tab))

Zoom on the Champion 200967

In a nutshell, the Champion 200967 is a compact portable generator mostly geared towards:

  • RV travellers wishing to enhance their freedom and nomad lifestyle
  • People occasionally participating in outdoor fairs, festivals or events
  • Handcrafting enthusiasts who wish to work on-the-go
  • Homeowners who want to be able to use the most necessary devices in their household, even during a blackout

In the following paragraphs, we shall explore the power characteristics, available outlets, portability, and any additional features of the device, along with its emission compliance information.

Power & Run Time

The Champion 200967 in use

The Champion 200967

Thanks to its dual-fuel technology, the Champion 200967 delivers 120V and offers power and versatility. When gasoline-powered, it benefits from a running wattage of 3,500W and a peak wattage of 4,375W. When propane-powered, it has 3,150 rated watts and 3,950 peak watts.

With a noise rating of 68 dBA (less noisy than background music), the generator features a simple traditional pull-start mechanism.

Regarding its running time, the 200967, with a 4.7 gallons fuel capacity can operate for around 14 hours at 50% load with a full tank of gasoline (fuel consumption around 0.34 GPH). When using propane, it can run for around 10.5 hours (on a 20 lbs tank - propane consumption around 0.45 GPH).

Since the 200967 has a high THD (<20%), it is advisable to not use it for the powering of sensitive electronic devices.

Outlets

The control panel provides the upcoming 4 AC outlets:

Duplex 120V 20A (5-20R)
120V 30A (L5-30R) receptacle
120V 30A (TT-30R) receptacle

This Champion generator is RV Ready, as it features a TT-30R receptacle (TT stands for 'Travel Trailer').

Portability

The design of the Champion 200967 is a typical, open frame, with the dimensions of L23.4 x W19.7 x H19.8 in, offering support and stability and enabling the possibility of raising it above ground level. The device has been designed for tough environments and demanding outdoor use.

Since the generator weighs 108 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). Thus, you may also want to consider purchasing its official wheel kit (opens in a new tab).

Features

The 200967's control panel

The 200967 and its control panel include an Intelligauge meter showing you voltage, frequency and lifetime hours. This feature comes handy when monitoring its status and activity.

The fuel level of the generator can be determined quickly, easily, and conveniently with the help of its built-in fuel gauge.

Security-wise, this product benefits from an automatic low oil shut-off and an overload protection (circuit breaker), which gives you a complete peace of mind when using it. Champion's built-in surge protector (Volt Guard™) safeguards your equipment and appliances against voltage spikes.

While the standard documentation and an owner's manual (opens in a new tab), helpful for starting the device promptly, come with the Champion 200967, the following accessories are also included: propane hose, cover, oil and funnel.

Emissions

The Champion 200967 is EPA-approved and CARB-compliant. Thus, selling and purchasing this generator is allowed in each of the 50 states, including California.

Moreover, it features a spark arrestor, so it is adequate for use in forested areas.

The Champion 200967 versus other generators

The following charts are provided to give you an idea of how some of the key specs of the Champion 200967 compare to dual fuel generators of similar power (between 3000 and 4000 W).

  • Having a dry weight of 108 lbs, the Champion 200967 belongs in the expected weight range for dual fuel generators which produce 3000 to 4000 rated watts. If weight matters to you, one of the champions in this power range is the A-iPower SUA4300iD with only 54.8 pounds.
  • As this generator has its lowest possible noise of 68 dBA, it should be considered noisier compared to its peers of a comparable running wattage. If you’d prefer a less noisy device, one of the most quiet devices, which share the same power range with this one, is the Westinghouse iGen4500DF, whose lowest noise levels reach just 52 dBA.
  • The 200967 provides a higher run time than similarly powerful dual fuel devices, reaching around 14 hours at 50% load. If concerned with autonomy, one of the products of a comparable power output, which offers the highest run time, is the Westinghouse iGen4500DF, boasting with around 15 hours.
  • Autonomy holds its importance, however, it is largely dependent on the generator’s fuel capacity and so, it is nonsensible to discuss it without mentioning fuel efficiency as well. This generator reaches an estimated fuel consumption of 0.34 GPH (gallon per hour) at a 50% load, making it average, for the previously mentioned wattage range. If you are concerned with gasoline efficiency, having a fuel consumption of just 0.23 GPH, the Westinghouse iGen4500DF is a device you could look out for.

Price comparison

As you can see from these interactive charts, when compared to other 3000-4000W dual fuel generators, the Champion 200967 is on the cheap side of the price range.

It can therefore be a really good buy if you're looking to acquire a budget generator.
