The Honda EU3200i has a Honda GX130 OHV 4-stroke engine with 130 cc. It runs on gasoline and has a running wattage of 2,600W and a peak wattage of 3,200W. It gives off 120V. Also, since it can work in parallel (but doesn’t come with a parallel kit), this power can be doubled by connecting it to another unit that works with it. The pull-start mechanism on the inverter generator is standard. It has a noise level of 54 dBA (not much louder than a conversation at home). The Electronic Fuel Injection (EFI) system makes the engine more reliable, uses less fuel, starts better, needs less maintenance, works better with stale fuel, and works better at higher altitudes. Due to its 1.2 gallon fuel tank, the EU3200i can run for up to 8.6 hours on a full tank (using about 0.14 GPH of fuel). The EU3200i makes a clean sine wave with a Total Harmonic Distortion of 3%, so it is safe to plug sensitive electronics into AC outlets (THD).
On the control panel, there are 3 AC outlets: a duplex 120V 20A (5-20R) outlet and a 120V 30A (L5-30R) outlet.Even though this Honda generator isn’t quite RV Ready, an L5-30P to TT-30R adapter makes it easy to connect it to an RV.
The EU3200i’s control panel has a digital data center that tells you how much fuel is in the tank.This helps you keep track of how it is working and what its status is.In addition to this information, there are a number of lights that tell you when the generator is overloaded, when it’s ready to go, and when the oil level is too low.When it comes to safety, this product has an overload protection (circuit breaker) and an automatic low oil shut-off (Oil Alert®), so you can use it without any worries.In addition to the features we’ve already talked about, the Honda EU3200i comes with the usual paperwork and an owner’s manual, which will help you start your generator quickly.
The encased inverter generator design of the Honda EU3200i (L22.5 x W12 x H17.8 in) makes it look better than any ordinary open frame product.The generator has a modern look and is easy to use when generating power for fun.With a dry weight of 59.1 lbs, the EU3200i’s power can be used anywhere.The EU3200i is also easier to move from point A to point B thanks to its built-in handle, which gives you a much better grip.
The following charts show how some of the most important features of the Honda-EU3200i 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
The Japanese Honda Motor Company, founded in 1948, has built a reputation for regularly delivering high-quality engines, motorized vehicles, and equipment.The business has built a solid name over the years in the power tool, motorbike, and vehicle industries.Since 1953, Honda’s power tool division has been manufacturing various power tools, such as tillers, mowers, blowers, sprayers, and of course, generators.Honda is still regarded as a legend among generator manufacturers even after the firm went worldwide and shifted the majority of its production from Japan to other Asian nations.
There is a warranty on the Honda EU3200i for up to 3 years.This warranty may not cover all parts of the generator or may only cover certain parts.Honda’s warranty policies can tell you more about how long the warranty on a Honda generator lasts.You can also call their customer service line at 1-770-497-6400.
