Speaking of generators, how many here actually have their house wired to use one?
I've had a transfer switch installed that will allow me to power my furnace, freezer, refrigerator, and my living room with my (non-prius) generator. This is a manual operation (I didn't spring for the auto transfer switch+generator), but it works well.
That can't be great for the engine. The drivetrain is obviously different than most other vehicles, but cars are built to move. Doesn't matter much when the safety/comfort of your family is depending on it, but I'm curious about whether 3 days of cycling would have any adverse effects.
