In my experience, if you ALWAYS put fuel conditioner in the gas you put in
the generator you won't have gumming problems. I never seem to know wen
i'll use a small engine next so I always use fuel conditioner.

> Thanks Bill, that's a good insight. Just keeping gum out of the
generator would be a big win in my opinion.

this year or early next year), but down here in Florida, if we're out
cruising and not at a dock (the transient slips tend to be over $100 a
night down here), a generator to run the A/C would be highly desirable.
> I love the idea of it running off the propane even if I have to get a
long hose to run from the propane locker in the stern all the way up to the
bow (we sleep in our stern berth).

> I found certain retailers of the Honda 2000 will sell you one converted
to run on propane from gasoline. Like the propane dinghy outboards (Lehr),
NO gum in the fuel system. There is a cost from lower BTU in propane than
gasoline, but if you already use propane for the Magma, you have the fuel
(hopefully in the right spot).
