This is actually what I meant to suggest. The OP has a nice quiet small generator - the Honda inverter. A second more powerful generator would run the big starting load stuff when necessary, while the Honda kept the furnace or fridge running over night.

I have loaned my 5000 watt backup gen out more than I have used it myself that said if you have a well that is not a shallow "stab" well you are probably running the pump on 220 volt so you need to be able to output 220 and have a way to hook it into your house load center.

Keeping fresh fuel on hand is a bit of a pain, summer I rotate fuel cans through the lawn tractor. Winter I have to generally rotate it through the car, or the snow blower but that does not use much. Nothing I enjoy about being at the gas station pouring a 5 gallon gas can into a car at 15 degrees then refilling the can.
