propane conversion kit for Honda EU2000i

So I had a grand plan to convert my EU2000i to propane so I didn't have to carry a different fuel around. I ordered the kit from propane-generators.com and then chickened out on the surgery once I read the instructions. It involves removing carb and drilling, plugging holes with glue, and as near as I can tell, cutting a hole in the red plastic case so the propane regulator can fit. More trouble than I'm interested in...

Also limiting my motivation is that 99% of the time we take a trip I pull a small cargo trailer to carry bikes and camping gear out of the weather so an extra gas can is no big deal...

I'll make someone a deal if they want to take the plunge. How about $80 plus shipping (less than half price)? If you're in Texas, we can probably also arrange a meetup instead of shipping. I'm in Houston, but head west pretty frequently.

Or better yet, a video on YouTube, set to the music of "Jumpin' Jack Flash"...

Just for info, I converted my Honda EU3000i (no, I don't carry it around. Use it at my place here in Baja) and it works great. I did it so I didn't have to worry about the gas going bad over time and gunking up the carb. Only way to go for one that doesn't get used too much. Good price on the kit Joe.

Joe,

I'm a sucker for all kinds of gadgets I don't have. And I don't have a propane kit for my EU2000, so let's do it.

Drop me a PM and we'll work out the details.

Mike
