I'd like to start a conversation around charging the battery when the power from the grid in not available.
In terms of KW capacity of the generator, how much more than what the house needs would you get to ensure proper
In terms of charging while home appliances also need the current, should one plug the car into a 110v so that it does not suck in all the Amps provided by the generator (assuming you don't have a monster generator).
In terms of class of generator, should one get an industrial grade? After all, this is the insurance against bricking the battery.
In terms of fuel type, what is the best in an emergency? Gasoline, diesel, NG/LP? Do I want to wait in line to Gasoline if the diesel line is shorter? (it could happen)
What else should one be prepared for?
