Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent layout and presentation of features I love my new Generac generator. It is exactly what I wanted and my wife bought it for me for Christmas. Great features and great performance. I considered other products, but none had all that I was looking for except the 17500E. So I wasn't going to settle for almost .... bought the best and got everything I wanted !! December 28, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great generator just received my 17500E. Set-up & start-up was easy. Can't wait to use it. If it works as well as my old 10000 EXL I'll be more than pleased. December 7, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great generator Just purchased this unit. Easy to assemble and service to run. Started in just a couple of revolutions. Low idle works as ment too. When power is needed it throttles up. Started my 4 hp compressor for initial test. No problem. I would recommend this unit. November 26, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by A monster generator Very easy to assemble and operate. Bought this in conjunction with Generac 50 amp outdoor manual transfer switch. We'll be ready for the next power outage. November 23, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Awesome machine Big but really nice machine, easy setup. I recommend it to all. November 14, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Nice generator o.I would recommend this unit to anyone who wants a whole house generator as it is the largest wattage available in a protable October 21, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good Basic generator with lots of power I purchased this generator to run my house in-case of a power outage. It runs the 5 ton ac and everything else no problem. I did put a hard start kit on the ac but I dont think it was needed. We have four dogs so if the power goes out in the summer we have no place to take the dogs this gives us a piece of mind. My 7kw was good for the winter we have gas heating. Cant beat the price!! October 20, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Plenty of power reserve. This is a great unit with more than enough power for my home. The only thing it needs is a quieter muffler system. September 24, 2014

Generac’s GP17500E portable generator does not have a gas tank supply hose, as the tank is already installed. Our GP Series portable generators are manufactured for use with gasoline only. As stated in the “Operation” Section of the product’s Owner’s manual, the gasoline should not contain more than 10% ethanol, nor should any special additives be utilized for fueling purposes. Also, it is important to never fill the fuel tank with E85 or a mixture of oil and gasoline. If you are interested in a portable generator that can operate on Liquid Propane, we would recommend considering our LP Series generators. Also, please note that at this time, Generac does not offer any accessories or conversion kits for its portable generators to run on natural gas. We also do not recommend such a conversion, for safety and performance reasons. If you would prefer a natural gas generator, we recommend our Guardian Series automatic home backup generator. These units can run on your home's existing natural gas fuel supply or propane tank, connect directly to your home's electrical system, and automatically turn on and off, in the event of a power outage.
Please contact Generac directly at 888-GENERAC (436-3722), For further information regarding the specifications and/or requirements of our manufactured generators.
