    Bloomberg has an interesting piece on The Real Cost of Preparing for a Blizzard. Bloomberg Rankings examined the cost for a family of four to prepare for a blizzard in Washington, D.C. Worth taking a look at. They cover generators, but don't cover heating. Seems they also missed out on the...

    We've been discussing the merits of inverter generators over in another thread: http://www.survivalistboards.com/showthread.php?p=3404082 It seems that the extra cash for inverter types is unnecessary. Not that I was considering getting a generator, but now that I've reached the conclusion a...

    As you do, I've just been beetling around on the Internet researching things and stumbled on generators and have been reading up about them; particularly inverter generators as I think the flexibility to use with electronics would be useful. I can't justify the expense at the moment ... but I'm...

    I've been a member of this forum for a long time. I initially joined because I was interested in survival and preparedness and simply wanted to learn from others. Over time ... I began to hang out in the religious section a lot and spent less time in the preparedness area. Anyway, the other...

    I am about to make a propane generator purchase for short term power outages. Before anyone jumps in telling me about learning to live without. I DO NOT intend for it to be a long term energy source. It is only for the odd power outage of a few hours to a few days or so. I have a line on a used...

    I was thinking of figuring out a way to charge a battery. I remember seeing some of those old tv shows that had the exercise bikes powering something or other. I cant seem to figure out what to search for. Any help would be appreciated in locating the device. I want to get one to add to my bug...

I have NATURAL gas, but wonder if I may have THAT supplied? Propane? I thought about THAT and wondered if I could get a big tank of...

    I was wondering. For those of you that have propane powered generators, how long does it generally run on a given amount of propane? I realize there are alot of variables such as generator size, load, and tank size. It would be nice to see some numbers.

    We have a 500 gallon (huge!) propane tank. We are considering running a line that would lead to a small tank, like the one used in gas grills. With that small tank, we can use it for a propran generator for the deep freeze. At least, I think that is how it works. We have a regular gas...

    I have been searching for a propane generator for a while now. I almost talked myself into a converted Honda 1000w for $1200 because of the reliablilty and fuel effiency. Now I am thinking that for the cost of a Honda I could get two cheaper plus buy alot of propane. Im not looking to...

    I have been researching this subject for a while. And with reading another thread about generators, it has given me a question. For anyone who has changed over a gasoline fueled engine to propane, how easy was this conversion and would you recommend it? Is there a reduction in power generated...
