Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease the bottom and 1/2-inch up the sides of two 9x5x3-inch loaf pans; set aside. In an very large mixing bowl beat sugar and oil with an electric mixer on medium speed until combined. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition; set sugar mixture aside.

In a large bowl combine flour, baking soda, salt, baking powder, cinnamon, and ginger. Alternately add flour mixture and the water to the sugar mixture, beating on low speed after each addition just until combined. Beat in pumpkin and banana. Stir in pecans. Spoon batter into prepared pans.
