The 1800 rpm Petter Diesel Generator

    This is my first diesel generator. It worked very well for the one winter I used it. Because it was inside the house, I was easily able to extract the excess heat it produced making my fuel dollar go further! This was an EBay Special and came with no support.
    That page even has some video clips of it running!
