PROPANE / PRESSURE Low and High


Recommended Posts

I am purchasing a duel fuel generator.  Would like to run off my Oliver tanks...connecting from the trailer to the generator at the optional tongue LP bib.  As I understand that would be low

pressure as the propane runs through the regulator at the tanks.   I should be able to run a direct hose from the bib to the generator.  If, I decide to run the generator off another LP tank, I

would need another regulator for that independent  tank.  I'm wondering...is there only two pressures, low and high, for LP appliances. (I hope they made this that simple)   Or, does each

appliance have a specific pressure?   And,  you have to purchase the appropriate regulator for the pressure your appliance requires?

Mark,

I run a Weber Q1200 grill and when needed an LP campfire ring. It beats looking at the ground. 😄Both of those required me to remove the factory regulators and just install quick connects. I simply attach my LP hose to the Oliver quick connect and use the grill or the campfire ring.
I also have a Honda eu3000is which I converted to LP using the HutchMountain.com conversion kit.  This conversion requires a separate regulator to an independent LP tank  so that I can push a button on the regulator and start or prime the LP into the carb. I really like the Hutch Mountain tri conversion and carrying zero gasoline and it burns cleaner. The gen will use three different fuel sources - LP, LNG, or gasoline.  I have not tried running the Honda off the Ollie yet as it is newly converted. 

I hope this helps. Others may chime in with further knowledge.

David

It depends on your generator...our Champion has a fuel flow safety device on the hose, plus a regulator. 

We were able to remove the "regulator from the fuel dispenser"  and put on a quick connect male fitting.

Here's video showing another persons solution.

In any case the safety device needs to be connected closest to the Generator, then an extension feed can run the rest of the way back to your trailer quick connect.
