Frequently Asked Questions
We look forward to getting you up and running on Propane or Natural gas
Can I still run my generator on gasoline after converting my generator to an alternative fuel?
** YES, You can simply do this by switching off your alternative fuel source and run the engine until it stops to ensure all of your alternative fuel is out of the fuel lines and then turn on your gasoline fuel source.
How many BTU’s of natural gas per hour will my natural gas generator use?
** To calculate this take your Horsepower x 2543.44 = BTU’s per hour used on your engine.
If I purchase your kit will I be able to run propane, natural gas & gasoline?
** This used to be the case because there was only one regulator offered but because of many varying natural gas pressures across the United States the pressure of 4 ounces is being found more often. With that being said you will not be able to run propane with a 4 oz regulator. With that being said that is the reason we only offer Propane kits or Natural gas kits.
How can I figure out the pressure coming out of my meter?
** There are 2 ways to do that. (1) Your gas company will be able to tell you in ounces. (Ex: 4 oz or 6 oz) (2) A plumber will be able to tell you in water column. (Ex: 7 inches or 11 inches of water column).
People have asked us what makes our hose different from what is being sold on the internet?
** The only thing I can tell you is we offer only the best, with over 35 years of experience we have determined that this is the best quality hose when dealing with a gasisty fuel when dealing with combustible engines not a poolheater or furnace. Our hose is designed around engines.
Can I connect my generator to a ½” pipe?
** Yes you can. (Only if your generator is 5000 watts or below). Anything more will cause a lack of natural gas volume to run your generator properly.
**Just a note, every elbow installed will reduce 3% of natural gas fuel volume**
When I run my generator on natural gas if I hold the primer button in my generator will run if I let it go it stalls what causes this?
** It could be a combination if issues, first of all make sure the pressure of the outlet of your natural gas is correct and rated for the regulator we sent and just remember that every elbow causes restriction and that ½” pipe will NOT work for any generator above 5000 watts.
Why does my order still show processing?
** That means that your kit is being built and when it’s done, we will email you the paid invoice with the tracking number.
If I install your kit will it void my warranty on my generator?
** When you install any aftermarket to anything, you always risk the chance of voiding the warranty.
Should I continue to have my PM’s the same on my generator with an alternative fuel as I do gasoline?
** YES, Continue as the manufacture warranty recommends that way you always have a good record.

What stops gas from flowing if generator stalls? *** It takes a engine vacuum to open the regulator so when the engine vacuum stops the engine stops fuel flow.

Can I use a flex line to run my generator on Natural Gas?
** NO, Because even if it is a ¾” or 1” flex line the flare swivel fitting on the flex line it reduces the I.D. (size) which reduces the Natural gas volume to your generator.
