    Default What kind of generators...

    Looking for a multi fuel or propane inverter generator for camping and home...does such an animal exist? 120/240 volt would be nice...only option I've found is to convert a 6300 Yamaha I think.


    thanks

    There are several kits available.

    I got to looking into this a while back. Most kits will run propane, natural gas and gasoline with a quick change-out.

    A couple links w/ info;

    https://www.propanecarbs.com/
    http://www.cfpkits.com/

    This one is loaded with info on their product.
    Generator Conversion Kits to Propane and Natural Gas.

    I know a local guy running a an old e150 van on propane w/the I6 300 engine.I think he called it a Nash kit. Says it's trouble free.

    Take this as a starting point for research not an endorsement, as I have not ordered a kit, yet.

    I've been seeing these little honda inverter generators on some of the vendor trailers for the past couple years.

    Does anyone here have any experience with them?

    For home... hard to beat tri fuel generacs.

    For camping? Still nothing as quiet as a Honda.

    It's kinda funny this came back up this week...I just got my dual fuel champion inverter 3500 watt on Friday. The Hondas and yamahas are great but I haven't found any multi fuel inverter sets factory built. My champion burns about 2 lbs of propane an hour running my camper. I also picked up a larger Dayton 6000 ish watt that needs some work, I guess 220 volt doesn't work. Maybe I can convert that to propane for home back up.

    Are retro kits readily available to convert gas to propane? It would be so much simpler to buy and store propane here.

    I've heard good things about the Champions. They also say the engines last longer because they run cleaner.

    Yeah Nutz, the links above are some of the conversion kits.
