The powerful and versatile Champion 100891 has a 120/240V output that is made possible by its dual-fuel technology. Even though it runs on gasoline, it has a running wattage of 7,500W and a peak wattage of 9,375W. It runs on propane and has a rated power of 6750 watts and a starting power of 8400 watts. The noise level of the generator is set at 74 dBA (Slightly louder than a shower). It has both a traditional pull-start mechanism and a simple but elegant electric starter (battery included). The 100891, which has a 7.7-gallon fuel tank, can run for about 10 hours at 0.5 load on gasoline (fuel consumption is approximately 0.77 GPH). If you use propane instead, it can run for about 5.5 hours on a 20-pound tank (propane uses about 0.85 GPH). Due to its relatively high THD (20%), the 100891 can’t be used to power sensitive electronic devices.
Two 120V 20A (5-20R) GFCI duplexes, a 120V 30A (L5-30R) receptacle, and a 120/240V 30A (L14-30R) receptacle are all on the control panel.Even though this Champion generator isn’t quite RV Ready, its L5-30R receptacle makes it easy to connect to an RV with an L5-30P to TT-30R adaptor.The 100891 is also ready for a transfer switch because it has a twist-lock L14-30R receptacle.If the power goes out, you can easily connect it to a breaker box and keep your home running.
The 100891 and its control panel have an Intelligauge meter that shows voltage, frequency, and the number of hours the battery will last.This makes it easier to keep track of its status and activity.A built-in fuel gauge makes it easy and quick to check how much gas is in the generator.From a safety point of view, the product has a circuit breaker for overload protection and an automatic shut-off for low oil, so you can use it without worry.Volt GuardTM, which is built into Champion, protects your equipment and appliances from voltage spikes.The Champion 100891 comes with some accessories, like a propane hose, a funnel, and oil, along with the usual paperwork and an owner’s manual to get you up and running quickly.
The Champion 100891 has a standard, open frame that measures L28.8 x W27.7 x H26.1 in, This frame gives it support and lets it be raised above the ground.The design shown is great for the outdoors and other rough places.The generator is technically “portable” because it can be moved, but at 207 pounds, it may be hard to move it by hand.Still, its wheel kit (dia:9.5) makes it easy to move “) and its handle that folds up, once it’s on the ground.
The following charts show how some of the most important features of the Champion-100891 compare to other generators with the same power output.

- We compared more than 500 portable generators at 50% load. We found that there is “skewed right” distribution for the difference between 50% load and 25% load and the median comes at 1.43. With this number we converter all the 25% load runtime to 50% load. Same with the propane efficiency, where median is 1.38.
- For some generators where propane runtime was not given, we used NIST 1994 GGE (Gasoline Gallon Equivalent) formula: 5.66 lbs. of propane = 1 gal of gasoline. All propane runtime is for 20 lbs. propane tank (4.7 gallons).
- Unlike many other sites, we actually tried to find out information about each of the above requirements. However, we are human and are therefore capable of the odd oversight or mistake. Please let us know if you spot any missing or erroneous values so that we can fix them.
About the Manufacturer
A US-based producer of power equipment, Champion Power Equipment was established in 2003.The comparatively tiny business has established a name for itself in the portable generator market as well as the larger power equipment market, with a concentration on heavy duty machinery like log cutters, snow blowers, chipper shredders, etc.Their whole product line is American-engineered.The corporation does not, however, disclose the country of origin of its parts.
There is a warranty on the Champion 100891 for up to 3 years.This warranty may not cover all parts of the generator or may only cover certain parts.Champion’s warranty policies can tell you more about how long the warranty on a Champion generator lasts.You can also call their customer service line at 1-877-338-0999.
