    I would bet a cold beer that you won't be able to spot the difference.

    That was what I was thinking, do a direct comparison of the two, for equal amount of time. I know this will be a long term project, since you will have to wait 'till you go through two power outages. Or, as a test, you could hook each one up for an hour, starting with a full fuel tank, and see which one takes less to refill. Either way, please let us know the results!
