    Advice needed. Which genset for off grid?

    Yeah, and good luck getting any warranty support out there in the middle of nowhere. All the modern stuff has so many electronics that they are a pain in the butt to do any work on without the correct manuals and in some cases software, not to mention you're unlikely to even find them in this...

    Advice needed. Which genset for off grid?

    If noise isn't as big of a concern then the MEP-003 is also a good choice. Being an air cooled diesel there is even less to go wrong with it than the 80X series.

If the generator is going to be a separate charger than the solar setup, you can size the charger according to the generator, as your battery bank should be more than big enough to handle any charge either the 802 or...

    Advice needed. Which genset for off grid?

    That isn't exactly how it works. The 4 cylinder engine isn't going to be using the same amount of fuel in each cylinder as the 2 cylinder engine for identical overall power output with everything else being equal. The 4 cylinders are producing half the power output each of the 2 cylinders...

    Advice needed. Which genset for off grid?

    Not sure about this "double the fuel use" deal. At full load (5kw) the 802 burns 1/2 gallon per hour. At full load the 803A (10kw) burns a gallon. At half load the 803A will burn just slightly more than the 802, simply because it has more mass to keep spinning, but it's certainly not double...
