As most of you know, I own and love my Honda 2000i generator. Lately, I’ve been hearing some chatter about a Propane Conversion kits for the Honda. A reader, Bob from
, and I exchanged some e-mails about the conversion. I went to the manufacturer's website https://hutchmountain.com/ and was pleased with their conversion kit. I especially liked how fast it is to convert from propane back to gasoline, it only takes a few seconds to do, see the video below. Nevada
For those of you wanting a Propane, Natural Gas or Gasoline generator their kits at around $260.00 looks like the answer, especially if you heat with propane and have a large amount of propane on hand to tap into.
Thanks Bob, for bringing this company to my attention! Below are some of Bob’s hands-on experience e-mail:

“I ordered a
conversion kit. After a cut finger, much cussing, and about 2 hours, I got the thing installed. (Shipping from their company was very fast). All I can say is that it works - no propane smell or other problems that I'm aware of.. Hutch Mtn.
I do like the convenience of propane, especially since I'm clumsy and old, and tend to spill gas over everything - especially with these damned vent-less cans.
Can't say if it's a viable alternative to gasoline, but as you say, availability and storage are the determining factors. Like you, I treat my stored gas, and after a year or so, dump it into my van and then refill the cans with fresh gas and preservative.
It may be an option for some of your readers, assuming they have all the facts. I'm in my mid-seventies, not particularly skilled with mechanical things, but I do have a few basic tools and can read and understand directions.
Anyway, thought you might be interested in my propane conversion experience. It's not for everyone, but might be a good option for some. One other thing to consider, I'm real fond of my little Honda generator, but I'm sure their excellent warranty is now void due to the propane modification.”
