CO Shield® – Carbon Monoxide Auto-Shutoff Technology
Powerful Protection From Harmful Carbon Monoxide.
What’s colorless, odorless, tasteless, and poisonous? Carbon monoxide, also known as CO. Read more…
All internal combustion engines produce CO including the engine used in your generator. That is why your generator must ALWAYS be used outdoors, far away from occupied buildings with engine exhaust pointed away from people and buildings.
Champion Power Equipment introduces a new feature called CO Shield. CO Shield monitors the accumulation of carbon monoxide (CO), a poisonous gas produced by engine exhaust when the generator is running. Champion urges its customers to remember that no generator feature can ever replace safe operating procedures.
When it detects unsafe elevated levels of CO gas, the CO Shield LED alert will pulse red to tell you there are dangerous levels of carbon monoxide and the generator will shut down. The UL-listed sensor is designed to test itself automatically and lasts a minimum of a decade.
Generators should only be operated in open-air environments. DO NOT allow engine exhaust fumes to enter a confined area through windows, doors, vents or other openings.
As a charter member of the PGMA (Portable Generator Manufacturers’ Association), Champion helped develop the ANSI/PGMA G300-2018 portable generator safety standard, including this important update addressing carbon monoxide safety. Co Shield meets the requirements of ANSI/PGMA G300-2018.
Portable generator safety has always been the top priority for Champion. CO Shield Technology is just one example of how Champion Power Equipment is constantly working to bring you advanced, innovative features to make sure you have safe, reliable power whenever you need it.
Champion’s CO Shield is NOT a substitute for safe practices or an indoor carbon monoxide alarm.

EFI – Electronic Fuel Injection Technology
Reduce Emissions and Increase Efficiency with Electronic Fuel Injection Technology.
Although electronic fuel injection (EFI) technology has been around for quite a while, this innovative fuel system is beginning to make its mark on the portable generator industry. Read more…
In order for an engine to run, fuel must be added to it. Traditionally, carburetors have been the fuel-delivery system of choice for portable generators. Carburetors rely on mechanical parts to inject the correct ratio of fuel and air into the engine’s combustion chamber.
Electronic Fuel Injection technology is a more precise way of injecting the fuel-air ratio into the engine. Getting that ratio just right gives your portable generator engine exactly what it needs to perform its job at peak efficiency. This translates into safety and savings.
Traditional non-EFI generators experience a significant performance loss when operating at high altitudes. This makes it necessary to install replacement carburetor jets to correct the air-fuel mixture.
EFI technology allows optimal performance at all temperatures and altitudes with no modifications necessary, plus the carburetor-free design eliminates bad fuel issues and gum-ups.
This dynamic, reliable fuel-delivery system reduces dangerous carbon monoxide emissions by up to 90%, making portable generators even more safe and environmentally friendly.
Portable generators with EFI will run more efficiently, resulting in up to 25% savings on fuel.
Unlike a carburetor, EFI is completely unaffected by air temperature or elevation since it makes its own pressure with a fuel pump. This means it can inject gas into the engine any time it wants, regardless of weather, location, or air pressure.
Portable generators with EFI technology easily adapt to changes. Sensors within the EFI fuel system provide feedback to the engine so it’s constantly adjusting to provide the optimum power for the current load. When a generator powering only a coffee maker switches to powering an A/C unit, EFI technology ensures that performance and efficiency remain consistent.
Although storing fuel long-term in any kind of gas engine is not recommended, EFI does simplify storage. Since an EFI fuel system is sealed, fuel-related issues like corrosion or damaging deposits are less likely.
Dual Fuel Portable Generators
Run your portable generator on gasoline or propane right out of the box.
Champion’s Dual Fuel technology makes it possible to operate your portable generator using either gasoline or propane. Switching between fuel sources is safe and simple, allowing you to choose the best fuel for your needs. Power your life with innovative options for a cleaner, easier experience. Read more…
Whether you’re backing up home essentials during an emergency, enjoying a weekend camping trip, tailgating or powering your latest project, Champion’s Dual Fuel Technology allows you to choose the fuel source that works best for you.
A Champion Dual-Fuel generator can be operated right out of the box on gasoline or propane, and since only one fuel source is allowed to operate at a time, you can easily and safely switch between fuels.
Dual Fuel Technology was developed to allow you to choose the safest and most effective fuel option for your needs.
Gasoline is readily available and is a fuel source that is easily portable.
Propane is less expensive than gasoline, and may be easier to obtain during emergencies when gasoline is in short supply. However, propane is not as easily portable as gasoline.
Propane has a longer shelf life and remains stable in storage for longer periods than gasoline, which is helpful if your generator will be used for backup during power outages. Also, propane is considered to be eco-friendly and is a cleaner burning fuel source than gasoline.
Champion understands that different situations require different sources of fuel.
Take control of your generator, your way. Powering your life is more convenient and versatile than ever with Champion’s innovative Dual Fuel Technology.
- Control – Dual Fuel Technology puts you in control and allows you to choose either gasoline or propane to power your portable generator
- Convenience – Champion makes it easy to switch between fuel sources
- Choice – Power your generator your way by choosing the best fuel source for your needs
- Safety – Safely switch between fuels, since only one fuel source is allowed to operate at a time
- Champion Support – Dual Fuel Technology is supported as part of your Champion generator’s warranty, which includes FREE lifetime technical support from dedicated experts
Wireless Remote Start Portable Generators
Start and stop your portable generator from up to 80 ft. away.
Start and stop your Champion portable generator from up to 80 feet away with Champion Wireless Remote Start technology. Equipped with a convenient wireless remote key fob, this technology makes your Champion portable generator more convenient than ever. Read more…
Whether you’re backing up home essentials during an emergency, enjoying a weekend camping trip, tailgating or powering your latest project, Champion’s Wireless Remote Start technology makes portable power even more convenient.
Now you can start and stop your Champion compatible portable generator from up to 80 feet away with the push of a button.
