Re: Convert Honda Generator to Propane...

I have a propane conversion kit in my garage for my Honda EU2000. I just can't bring myself to modify the unit to use propane.

So Mike, did you ever take the plunge? The thread about quietest generators got me wondering about any noise difference between gas-fired vs propane-fired generators, and that led me to this thread. [FWIW, seeing propane-fired generators on YouTube shows me there's no appreciable difference in noise]. Long term fuel stability is a huge benefit with propane, that's for sure.

Re: Convert Honda Generator to Propane...

Never did it.

The reasons are:

1 - drilling holes mean no going back

2 - on propane it has less power and less output
