Captain Canuck: Very well explained. You covered it. Is the regulator on the propane tank the same one used for the BBQ?
kevin d: Thank you for demonstrating both LPG and Petro at the end of the video. Excellent demo, I would agree that some forward thinking before installation is needed.
Douglas Gant: can you tell me how many hours you have run on your generator with the kit so far? have you noticed any problems, burning oil? thanks.
Louie Lamoore: How long (hours) can you run that generator with that tank (assuming it is full)?
Gerald Thomas: That is so cool! I didn't know that you could do that. Very interesting.
Jimmy Ray: Tank size is important because propane is a compressed liquid. The generator does not burn liquid. There has to be sufficient surface area of liquid in the tank so the liquid can boil into vapor at fast enough of a rate to supply the engine. A small tank at low temps may not be able to boil fast enough. That's why large tanks are laying horizontal to get a large liquid surface area. This is why propane is an excellent refrigerant.
silverbankruptcy: Does anyone know what the the difference is Between the Type C Kit and their Type 4 Kit that costs $100 more?
Larry Bamm: I just finished my conversion. Same kit from U.S. carburetion with some supplies from Calo're equipment. The video was a great help--Thanks. I used natural gas.
Hi-Tech RedNeck: Yeah, I could just see a video of.
Poof, Uh-oh propane leak. LMAO
Hi-Tech RedNeck: I'm curious how you wasted 2500 on a LPG conversion set-up?
If you've never got it working.
Do you wanna sel your kit?
399Scott: runs cleaner and smoother but I believe you lose power - I really don't see any loss but...The most power being regular gas, propane then Natural Gas - It cost about $200 for the kit - the quick connects and hose is about another $250
Abnermoon: Is the propane more efficient? How much was the kit?
brkr7799: Lol, 3/4" @ 5' is way more than you need. You can run 30hp+ with your setup, as long as you don't step down @ your fittings... But with natural gas bigger is better.. My supply is about 175% of what I need @ 25'.
399Scott: Thats very true - I have an 8000 with a 3/4" supply of nat. gas and no more than 5' away from my meter -
brkr7799: It sounds like your supply line might be too small. What size line did you run and how far is your generator from your NG meter?
399Scott: thats sux - I have never had an issue - did you order from US carb?
jeff69rag2001: I bought a Propane Conversion kit and what a waste of time, money and enery, "no pun intended". I have wasted 2500 on this setup and will not run for 10 seconds, no tech support. If I knew this before I would of purchased a Generac and be done....
Larry Bamm: Excellent video! Thank you. I have been planning this project for a while. I cracked up at your comment about not testing for leaks with a match! :) You have to remind some people. I have a Powerhorse 7000. I think tri-fuel is the right kit, even though I will only use propane and gasoline.
Hardwarenutz: Remember you will lose 10% of your rated hp and therefore watts using propane, and lose another 10% using natural gas. (Using natural gas you will lose 20% of your rated watts compared with using gasoline). Example: If your generator is rated at 5000 Surge Watts/4000 Rated Watts using gasoline. Using Natural Gas you will have 4000 Surge Watts/3200 Rated Watts.
icehell0: brilliant , ok 2 question , will this converter work on bio gas and 2nd how long will it run on a 200 pound propane tank ?
