How does an LPG generator conversion work?

An LPG (liquid propane gas) generator conversion involves altering a gasoline generator to run on LPG instead. This typically involves installing a new carburetor that is designed to work with LPG, as well as making sure that all of the generator's seals and gaskets are compatible with LPG. In addition, the generator's air intake and fuel delivery systems may need to be modified. The conversion process typically involves removing the generator's existing carburetor and installing the new LPG-compatible carburetor, making sure that all of the generator's seals and gaskets are compatible with LPG, and adjusting the generator's air and fuel systems as needed. It's important to note that converting a generator from gasoline to LPG should only be done by a qualified technician, as it can be dangerous if not done properly.

With fuel prices rising, why not look for an affordable alternative? A dual fuel generator uses both gasoline and natural gas. You have the freedom to use either gas or petrol to run your generators. You can easily change from one type of fuel to another by simply turning off one or thee other. A dual fuel carb ensures that you will always have power no matter what happens.

Why Convert to LPG?

We at SA LPG Carburetors are huge advocates for the conversion from petrol to LPG. No matter whether it's a small generator or something a little larger, the great long-term benefits make converting worthwhile.

Reduced Costs– LPG is less expensive long-term for various reasons, including emissions and engine lifespan.

The Environment– LPG produces fewer emissions than petrol, making it more environmentally friendly.

Convenience– LPG is easier to transport and refill, swicthing to LPG also makes generators produce less noise pollution as it is quieter.

Almost all small engines and generators can benefit from switching to LPG. Also, it's easier now than ever before to make the switch.

There are several reasons why converting a gasoline generator to run on LPG (liquid propane gas) may be a good idea:

  1. Cost savings: LPG is typically less expensive than gasoline, so running a generator on LPG can save money on fuel costs in the long run.

  2. Safety: LPG is a cleaner-burning fuel than gasoline, which means that it produces fewer emissions and is less likely to cause a fire.

  3. Reliability: LPG generators tend to be more reliable than gasoline generators, as they are less affected by problems such as stale fuel or clogged carburetors.

  4. Convenience: LPG is a readily available fuel that can be stored for long periods of time without degrading, making it a convenient option for backup power or off-grid living.

  5. Environmental benefits: LPG is a cleaner-burning fuel than gasoline, which means that it produces fewer emissions and is better for the environment.

  6. In some areas, LPG is more available and easily accessible than gasoline, making it a more practical choice for running a generator.
