Gas generator converted to propane


Recommended Posts

Best mod that I didn’t even know existed till I met a fellow future Ollie owner during my last factory tour. Works great!

Why mount that huge regulator onto the plastic cover of the gennie, rather than leaving it loose? It seems like it would be really easy to damage the mounting area, and transporting the gennie in a different way would be risky and awkward. I really like the concept but I have some big reservations about the method.

 

Is there a smaller low pressure regulator that might work?

 

Does the Eco throttle still function?

 

Are there any jets that can be altered for high altitude operation?

 

I have that same unit and it is a great generator.

 

Thanks.

I installed a 1x1/8 in. aluminum rail that connects to the frame (inside) on both sides and mounted the regulator to it. Very stable.

The mod is super easy and no more hauling or managing gasoline. The (2) 30 lb propane tanks up front provide days of continuous cooling easily. Runs quieter. The only time I move it out of the basket is to fill/change oil. The highest I have had it is 9,000 feet... runs fine. You can still use gasoline and run normally if you really want/need to without having to remove anything. Not sure about a smaller regulator.
