Got my new gen, recommendation for an hour meter?

I did a search on here, and the last post is back in 2012 regarding an hour meter. Any advice on what to purchase?

I have 3 of these now: https://www.ebay.com/itm/RacingPower...ss!04074!US!-1
Easy to read and program!

I'm surprised that the Champion 100402 doesn't have one built in.

Looking at the manual, it states on page 12, Item 5 LED Panel - Flashing Blue – Total run time (first 5 seconds after unit started), Amber – Remaining fuel run time or “LPG” in LPG mode.

Very, in my experience. It uses an induction line from the spark plug cable. Be sure to do 6 wraps on the cord for optimal signal.
