If you're talking about the generator being able to run everything in your house, you should figure on a 300-500 GALLON tank for 7 days or so. A 120 gallon will get you by for about 3 days or so depending on load.

Figuring that you'll reduce load at night while asleep. You can get tanks of this size and larger in both above and underground configurations. My parent have a huge one buried in their yard as their heat and cooking run on propane.

Take a look at this for an idea:

Thanks Stormtrooper, good info,

I'm no fan of EV cars but I have to say I am curious to see what this will look like and the performance it will pump out.

In the 2nd trailer Tim Kuniskis pulls the car cover back and you catch a glimpse of the front bumper.

As much as I love the sound of a badass engine and exhaust. I care far more about legitimate performance.

That will have to be the selling point to me. And it can’t be close to gasoline, it has to be dramatically faster

Knowing Dodge, it's a good bet they'll add some simulated 'noise', inside and out.

Ughh I’m not down for the simulated noise. That would piss me off

Thanks Stormtrooper, good info,
You're welcome. Somewhere in your generator paperwork there should be a load/fuel use sheet based on usage/percent load. You can calculate your fuel usage at full load per day and then figure how many days coverage you want. It's good to go over by about 20%.

Congrats on getting a Generac (y)

And no possibility of having a non-fossil fuel infrastructure to handle all the "charging stations" that need to be built in that timeframe.

Lots of nuke plants will be the only way to go all electric and non-fossil.

Not to mention the load planning and retrofit that will have to be done for every community to deal with that increased load.

And all those new copper cables......where the F do these people think that comes from???

Gonna be digging up the ground for more copper.
 

BULL

Oh NO! Not that guy!

Damn pixie-dust will make it happen.

Anybody guess how much electricity goes into making copper from ore?

Hell......I was just thinking about all the diesel fuel needed for the earth moving equipment to dig it all up....and transport it....and then transport it again to the wholesaler.....and then again to the electric company...and then again to the field for install......

Oh.....and then all the pine trees that will have to be cut down for pole replacement to larger poles to hold the extra weight of the extra cables that will need to be installed.

I doubt it's even related to the prototype. Electric cars don't need a massive grille/opening for a radiator. And for EVs it's all about lower drag (yes even for a muscle variant). Bad air slows u down/steals power. Be prepared for a MuscleEgg(tm).

eventually, all of those transport and digging devices will be electric too....

Planes eventually (tho that's far off for now)
