ALDI Inverter Generator WK38 PD 50

ALDI have an interesting 4-stroke, unleaded petrol Generator available for $329. ( I thought it was just $79.99 when I first saw the advert – but I was wrong).

I checked the operating costs of this unit, based on petrol costs of $1.50 per litre.

At 66% of power usage, the cost of power works out at about $1 per hour.
This is based on the quoted consumption of 0.65 litres every hour at that usage rate.
