I've had a Yamaha 2400, that I bought converted, for about four years. I don't use it that often, but I've had no problems when I do. I added a flexible line with quick disconnects to the Airstream LP tanks and I use that for the generator and BBQ.

I guess another way to look at it would be by weight. 20 lbs of gasoline would be 3.29 gallons, at 6.073 lbs. per US gallon .

How long will a generator run on 3.29 gallons of gasoline vs how long will it run on 20 lbs of propane, with the same electrical loads?

Don't mind me. I'm on the espresso this morning....

My numbers are based on liquid gallons...
