If propane only starting is that difficult, then I am not interested and will purchase a Honda or Yamaha. Can anyone share from their experiences on using the Champion dual fuel generator on propane only? I appreciate any advice, insight and perspective. Thanks in advance
It can be difficult especially at altitude...my solution on our USCarb dual fuel conversion. A petrol shut-off valve.
I first make sure the gas line is fully purged of air, by pushing in the diaphragm on the back side of the regulator.
If still not firing, I start on petrol, pinch off the LP line, shut the valve off, when the genset starts to stumble, release the line. It's really only a concern above 8k'.
