    Many of the same benefits that you will read about in this article are passed over to a GEN Engine as well.

    Today I will call Ferrell Gas Co. back and ask them how much a Gallon of LP is vs. a Gallon of Gas. This will be for our Region of course, but should not be a huge difference regardless of where you live.

    I got so caught-up with them on the phone yesterday about my visit with them tomorrow to test drive that Dodge Charger that has been converted to run on LP, that I forgot to ask for the price per gallon of LP!

    Thank-YOU!

      Gas Cost vs. Propane Cost....

      In our neck of the woods, Gas has been averaging around $3.80 per gallon, Market price for Propane is around $2.99 right now.

      That's a considerable savings when speaking in terms of fuel expense!

      Thank-YOU!

        LP lasts Longer than Gas?

        "Propane also lasts longer then gas?"

        Will Reed

        Will,

        If you mean by way of storing it, It is my understanding that LP; when properly contained, can be stored for up to 10+ years.

        Below is a link that discusses proper LP storage proceedures.

        Hope it helps!

            Usage Per Hour....

            Will, I have been told by (1) Propane "Expert" from a Conversion Kit Company that "the (2) burn at about the same rate."

            So, I guess we gotta go with ALL the other benefits.

            Would be AWESOME if LP also burned at a slower rate though, that's for sure!

              Propane vs. Gas....

              declerklpgas has replied to your comment on What Do You Know About Propane? - Propane Generator Conversion:

              LP weighs 4.24 lb/gl. A 20 lb grill cylinder costs approx $20, has approx15 to 20 lbs LP at cost of approx $5/gl. Small engines need non ethanol to preserve gaskets & priced at $5/gl?. Can save if use 100 lb cyl or hook into your house LP lines at bobtail price of $2 to $3 per gl. Propane has 3/4 the btuh's of gasoline (91,600 vs.114,000). Factor in as well. Can save $2/3 per gal. Small engines are well know for pollutants. If you convert to LP you have bragging rights for going "GREEN".

                Interesting New Law....

                Did you know that if an Engine does not already come from a Engine Manufacturer set-up to run on Propane, that you cannot convert it to run on Propane and then sell it?

                This Law was passed this year.

                That is why I'm very glad that the Engineer who is building our TYPHOON GEN knew this fact and orders Engines that are set-up by the Manufacturer to run on Propane!

                It is still o.k. to Convert an Engine over to Propane that is not set-up this way from the Engine Manufacturer...just not for re-sale!

                So, this is one of the reasons why many of the GEN Manufacturers just don't add a Propane Conversion Kit and start selling Propane Models...they must first Engineer/design and then produce an Engine specifically for this task.

                Again, nothing wrong with Converting your own GEN, just don't try to market and sell it.

                Thank-YOU!
