The University of Alabama recently tested a prototype, closed-loop electronic fuel injection system piece for portable generators that reduces carbon monoxide emissions significantly, as much as 90% or more when compared to traditional generators.

These types of generators are often used for traveling in RVs or RV trailers, camping, after an emergency or significant storm, or anytime the power is out for an extended period of time.
