I converted my Honda generator to use propane fuel instead of gasoline this past week. Why? During the hurricanes last year, it was a real pain and downright dangerous to fuel a hot generator, late at night in 40++ MPH winds. The little generator only holds 1 gallon of gasoline, but can run up to 9 hours on it.

How are you regulating the A/F ratio?

How long can it run on the 5 gallon propane tank?

Neat conversion, is this a kit or something you fabbed up. How much did it cost?

I bought a kit from Here

The Garretson regulator is like a SCUBA regulator, it only allows what the engine demands, throught the vacuum in the throttle venturi.

That's pretty neat. How long can it run on your propane tank? How big is the tank in the picture?

427Z06, the tank in the picture is a 20# tank, which I estimate will run the generator for 35-40 hours. I also have a new 40# tank which I believe is around 9.5 gallons of liquid.

During the hurricanes, I had this hooked up to the house circuits that powered the fridge, kitchen and bathroom lights, and TV/DirecTV. I got 7-9 hours on a gallon of gasoline, with the generator on the Eco-Throttle mode.

I think the kit was $99, plus the cost of the tank regulator and 6' hose.

Thanks for the info Pick. I have one of those EU2000i as part of my natural-disaster/terrorist-attack/grid-craps-out survival package. I may have to get one of those kits.
