Sometimes you have to bump the idle up just a little to get them to accept the power.funny thing about my ups..it wouldnt actually work using my old school 7500kw generator. guess it didnt produce a "clean" enough power wave/signal/whatever its called when plugged directly into it.
What were the service intervals?I used to work at a Hyster dealership. Cleaner and lower maintenance costs was a big selling point for LP trucks. I never really saw any oil issues with them, and I only serviced about 5000 of them or so.
That's how long I let my gasoline mower go.IIRC, 200 hours.
get BilletMan to do the CFMs of the engine and figure out what kind of pressure regulator/hose size you'd need. Then prod him to tell you how to recover the exhaust energy for heat!!def interested if this will work on the bigger portable generators. id love to have a 500g tank of propane in the yard vs keeping 100 gallons of gas around and fresh all the time.
I'm looking for a Hells Kitchen "it just fell off da truck" deal.
Are Interstate and Yuasa still all under the same capitalist umbrella?I've never had a problem with the UPS running off my little Honda EU2000is.
Speaking of UPS things, I'm down at Interstate Battery weekly picking up new batteries for the things at work. Got six of them this week. One of them takes a four pack of batteries.
Why Interstate? Because it is close, and we can have the battery in less than an hour.
I've replaced two UPS units at the house this month.
220/221 he still wont give the deets. If you parallel some EUs... they use 1/2 as much fuel but generate 2x power. Need clarification? Check out Ocasios pic up there for the green new deal!How about recovering the exhaust heat, for energy?
As many hurricanes as Ive been through... 1 EU2000 is plenty for essential survival with an extended run tank. A fridge, tv, radio, phone charger, single burner coil and a propane grill for cooking. I bought a 2200 just to show off.For aboot ten large, I could have two EU7000is wired together. Or, for twelve five, I could have a 20KW 1800RPM diesel generator rattling away out back.
If only I had Cisco/YSR/Ro$$ money.

Running the natural gas or propane means you need to change the oil twice as often beside the 20% power loss.
The volatile components of the oil cook off as it runs and the oil loses it's ability to flow as well and if left long enough, will turn into pudding.
I only know what I've seen happen.WTF is this?? So running on a gaseous fuel boils off the 'light ends' of the lube oil. Apparently twice as pronounced as gasoline combustion?? Never mind the soot formation from liquid gasoline that spoils the oil and turns it dark. This is counter-intuitive as fuck. I'm calling bullshit on this. If you're right, please educate me...I'd like to know...
Natural gas tends to extend the useful life of the engine's lubricating oil because it produces less carbon when burned. In conventionally fueled vehicles, engine oil degrades as a result of soot and other impurities from the combustion process that are then absorbed by the oil. NGV owners should consult their vehicle's maintenance manual for the proper oil-change interval. For vehicles that have been converted from gasoline to natural gas, it's still best to follow the original maintenance schedule, particularly if the engine is under warranty. Fleet managers may find it economical to send oil samples to a laboratory for testing, to understand the maximum useful lifetime for each oil change.
I'll find pics...I've TIG welded fittings onto my EU-2000 and EU-6500 mufflers....These things are super quiet...I've had them running inside my shop, doing a great job of piping the exhaust out the roof. Heat recovery picks up the rejected heat from the engine and generator processes, as well as a bit from the exhaust conduit leaving the building. It's extracting the most usable gain from the fuel spent...How about recovering the exhaust heat, for energy?
years ago some SuperStock, Stock, and Comp Elim drag racers would buy the oil drained from top fuelers for this very reason. Very low tension oil rings and voilaFriend of mind used to race Go Karts with "stock" Briggs and Scrapiron engines. They would dope the oil with crap that would burn off during the race and give them a wee bit of extra power.
Less BTU's with LP/LNG.i cant see how the temperature of the oil would be higher with LP/LNG....if it made a bigger/hotter bang...wouldnt it make more power vs less?
arent most oils engineered to resist temperatures far in excess of what even gasoline produces? the oil shouldnt be in the combustion chamber anyway...these arent two strokes.
May be something with the gasoline that gets into the oil in the crankcase keeping the oil "solution" together better?I still dont see any logic behind a cooler/cleaner burning fuel causing oil to burn off faster than using gasoline.
