    At least for the short run, I have put the diesel Lister/Listeroid on the back burner. In the mean time, I am still formulating my plan B, and would like to stay with a stable fuel source that will store for long periods of time (i.e. not gasoline). I came across this a few days ago, and am...

    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 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 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...

    Just curious and I'm a little nosey too:o: The only thing I will be using LP gas wise will be my gas grill and my camp stove/oven combo. So far, I have 5 of the 22 gallons and 80 of the (1 lb) canisters. I don't have one of those large 250-500 gallon tanks. I'm thinking about increasing...

    I am looking to purchase a smaller sized propane generator. Would like it to operate a 1/2 hp pump or charge a deep cell 12volt. I have not been able to locate much on the web. Would like it to be portable. Any suggestions? Thanks! BIH

    Saw a posting elsewhere on propane generators - interested in what people here think about them. The 3500W pictured below will supposedly run for 20.5 hours at 1/2 load on one 20lb tank. Cost $599.
