Higher-Ground Farm: What happens if the engine stalls, does the gas shut off automatically? Other than the regulator, does it have any way of regulating the amount of propane it uses while under load and then when the load is less?
MrandMrsOdie: R.I.P. eardrums at the 8:33 mark. Thanks otherwise.
Warren C.: Hello Scott: Perhaps you are following the instructions buy it seems that the new fuel should be introduced beyond the carburetor. Thanks.
donald laisure (73SuperGlide62): What i can hear you speak up
Captain Canuck: Very well explained. You covered it. Is the regulator on the propane tank the same one used for the BBQ?
kevin d: Thank you for demonstrating both LPG and Petro at the end of the video. Excellent demo, I would agree that some forward thinking before installation is needed.
Douglas Gant: can you tell me how many hours you have run on your generator with the kit so far? have you noticed any problems, burning oil? thanks.
Louie Lamoore: How long (hours) can you run that generator with that tank (assuming it is full)?
Gerald Thomas: That is so cool! I didn't know that you could do that. Very interesting.
Jimmy Ray: Tank size is important because propane is a compressed liquid. The generator does not burn liquid. There has to be sufficient surface area of liquid in the tank so the liquid can boil into vapor at fast enough of a rate to supply the engine. A small tank at low temps may not be able to boil fast enough. That's why large tanks are laying horizontal to get a large liquid surface area. This is why propane is an excellent refrigerant.
silverbankruptcy: Does anyone know what the the difference is Between the Type C Kit and their Type 4 Kit that costs $100 more?
Larry Bannerman: I just finished my conversion. Same kit from U.S. carburetion with some supplies from Calo're equipment. The video was a great help--Thanks. I used natural gas.
Hi-Tech RedNeck: Yeah, I could just see a video of.
Poof, Uh-oh propane leak. LMAO
Hi-Tech RedNeck: I'm curious how you wasted 2500 on a LPG conversion set-up?
If you've never got it working.
Do you wanna sel your kit?
399Scott: runs cleaner and smoother but I believe you lose power - I really don't see any loss but...The most power being regular gas, propane then Natural Gas - It cost about $200 for the kit - the quick connects and hose is about another $250
Abnermoon: Is the propane more efficient? How much was the kit?
brkr7799: Lol, 3/4" @ 5' is way more than you need. You can run 30hp+ with your setup, as long as you don't step down @ your fittings... But with natural gas bigger is better.. My supply is about 175% of what I need @ 25'.
399Scott: Thats very true - I have an 8000 with a 3/4" supply of nat. gas and no more than 5' away from my meter -
brkr7799: It sounds like your supply line might be too small. What size line did you run and how far is your generator from your NG meter?
399Scott: thats sux - I have never had an issue - did you order from US carb?
