Propane generator

We do a lot of camping without hook-ups. Currently have a solar panel, but are considering a portable generator (preferably to run on propane). Any suggestions or advice?

I'd recommend a Honda eu2000i with a tri-fuel kit: https://www.propanecarbs.com/honda-e...onversion.html

Lets you run on gas, propane or natural gas. We travel with the Honda eu2000i as a backup to our solar, and it's a great generator. And small in size.

I have a Honda EU2000i that i have converted to propane fuel only. It's nice because it can sit for long period and you don't have to worry about the carb gumming up.

And I vote for the Yamaha, converted to tri-fuel.

We have the Yamaha 2400isHC that I converted to tri-fuel. Works great but is too big for our needs. I'd be interested in selling it if you are interested.

Thumbs up

We have been using a dual fuel 2000i for 8yrs.
Bought the conversion kit from US Carb, and self installed, no regrets at all.



Clean,very little exhaust smell, plus the LPG mixture is adjustable for altitude compensation.
I do run on gasoline once in awhile just to ensure both systems are working properly, if you have both, might as well use both. (note petrol shut-off valve & tach/hr meter)
