Honda 2000 propane gas conversion:
A few different make conversion kits... and after a bunch of research I went with Propane carbs: 1-877-425-8383
The conversion works well, and at one point I had a question, and I called them and they were very responsive and helpful. They were as well before the sale.
It was a little fiddly to do myself - but someone who was more mechanically minded than me would find it easy.
I took my time, and did give them a call once to have them walk me thru one step.
It consistently starts on the first few pulls, and fits in a large Tupperware type bin I bought at HomeDepot.
The big plus for Propane + Honda 2000 conversion kit is:
It can still run on gasoline if need be……. but I have NEVER put gasoline in my Honda 2000.
We live in an earthquake zone (SoCal) and a generator is a good thing to have!
Gasoline goes stale and bad in 6-ish months… so I did not want to have to keep gasoline around, and also have to rotate it….
We always have 3 propane bottles around… and propane NEVER goes stale.
There is zero smell, as it has never had gas in it.
