The 1/2 amp number was one I found in the specs for the 5cf 3 way fridge.  I've boondocked for 12 days straight and my anecdotal experience bears out that number give or take a bit.  When I go out that most of my power draw is the fridge, the CO2 detector, a tiny bit of lights and very limited water pump use.  If you can pin down better data that'd be great.

You can find an inverter generator running on gas, but you need to choose it carefully because the size of a tank volume may vary. Check out this list: https://lawngardentop.com/best-power-generator/best-inverter-generators, you can compare the specs and decide if you need a common inverter generator or the one running on gas.

To add my two cents. If you're choosing whether to use propane or a gas, you need to keep in mind, that propane is much harder to find and consumption is quite high. And it's not only less energy per gallon, but propane carburetors designs stop in 19-th Century. Meaning the same generator will use 2 gallons of gasoline for whole day, or 5 gallons of propane.
I bought a Honda EU2200i several years ago, so far so good.
