I have the Yamaha 2400isHC, bought it from US Carb already converted. Broke it in on gas, per recommendation, and have run it on propane ever since and it just works great. No buyer's remorse at all.

If anyone is thinking about converting or buying one converted, talk to the people at US Carb in West Virginia. I know that the year that I purchased, when they drilled the hole into the carb, I had them do it for me as it sounds like someone should know what they are doing AND warranty... Now though, there is a totally different way that they have patented. I understand there is no drilling. As many have testified, LP is really the way to go. You avoid so many issues, especially if intermittent use is in your plan.

I would need both Honda EU 2000s to run AC on genny power. Have done that with gas and a gas tank that feeds both gennys. Could the same be done on propane? Also - I thought I remembered reading somewhere that propane lowers the energy output - is that correct? Love the idea of running off my propane tanks instead of more gas on the road - but having the gas option at home if needed...

Propane has less energy per gallon equivalent. But never sours or goes bad. Which is why RVs conceptually center around this fuel. All else is optional once past water.

The output stays the same but the consumption factor varies by energy source if I understand the charts on US carb's website correctly. It would seem that you could run two on LP.

Running on LP is nice. The one thing I learned is to bleed the LP into the line then hook it up to the gen. That helps with starting. Once you adjust it, it purrs- no difference.
