Gasoline Generator to Propane

Two years ago I converted my generator to tri fuel it will run on gasoline, propane or natural gas.

The company I bought it from is having what I believe is a great sale.

Check it out if you are thinking of this.

Nearly Half Priced Motor Snorkel

As a previous customer, I also got an email from them about this. I'd been planning on converting my Honda EU100i and jumped on this deal.

If you're interested, it's only for this weekend.

Your post is very timely, since I was about to convert my Honda 2000 to tri-fuel, and was considering this kit. I have a couple of questions for those who used the US Carb snorkel kit.

Has the snorkel adapter been durable? I watched a YouTube video where the owner said he had to replace the first one because the gas input broke off the snorkel adapter due to vibration.

Is there a special code to get the discount, or does the sale start this weekend? I don't see any mention of a discount or sale when I follow the link.

Thanks- Bob

You don't have to carry gasoline, you can use your LP tanks.

Also you could use the generator at home with natural gas if you have it. Would be great for a power outage. I have only run mine on gasoline to break it in, and used propane since. Nice not to have to carry gasoline. The engine should run cleaner.

Question

Whats the advantage of tri-fuel if you don't use one of the tri's?.....

I've found that the way we use our generator at home during an outage, it's more convenient to use petrol ...usually have plenty on hand for all the other 'stuff'.

I've also found it's easier to start on gas and switch to LPG in cold weather & at altitude.

YMMV....

What's the difference between tri-fuel and the high pressure propane gasoline option?

I just did the conversion using the kit that was on sale. VERY easy to do.
