The Generac GP2200i has an 80cc Generac OHV 4-stroke engine that puts out 120V, runs on gasoline, and puts out 1,700W at full power and 2,200W when running. Also, because it can work in parallel (but the GP2200i Parallel kit is not included), this power can be doubled by connecting it to another unit that works with it. The pull-start mechanism on the inverter generator is simple and old-fashioned. Due to its 1.2 gallon fuel tank, the GP2200i can run for up to 10.75 hours on a full tank (using about 0.11 GPH of fuel). The GP2200i makes a clean sine wave. With a Total Harmonic Distortion (THD) of less than 3%, you can safely plug sensitive electronics into its AC outlets.
The control panel has the following two AC outlets: Duplex 120V 20A (5-20R).It also has 2 DC outlets: a 12V 8A receptacle for charging batteries and a 5V USB port for charging devices like cell phones or tablets.
The lights will let you know when the generator is ready, when the oil level is too low, and when the generator is too busy.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.The Generac GP2200i comes with basic instructions and an owner’s manual to help you start the generator quickly.It also comes with a funnel and oil, among other things.
The Generac GP2200i is an inverter generator.It has a case that is L19.7 in, x W11.4 in, x H17.9 in, So, it looks better than most other products with open frames.The goal of this modern design is to give recreational users the best way to get power.The GP2200i is a lightweight portable generator because it only weighs 46.6 lbs.The generator is easy for one person to move, so it can be used anywhere.The case is also made with a handle that makes it easy to carry and adds to its convenience.
The following charts show how some of the most important features of the Generac-7117-GP2200i 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
Founded in 1959, Generac Power Systems is an American manufacturer of power tools and generators.Generac’s primary business is, as its name implies, the manufacture of power generators as well as other electrically related products like switches, paralleling systems, and tiny engines.The corporation has multiple US-based production facilities, thus its goods are produced there.The company, however, doesn’t disclose where the components they use were made.
The warranty for the Generac GP2200i lasts for up to 2 years.This warranty may not cover all parts of the generator or may only cover certain parts.Generac’s warranty policies can tell you more about how long generators are covered by warranty.You can also call their customer service line at 1-888-GENERAC (888-436-3722).
