Q: I have a 15,000 watt generac gasoline generator, is a natural gas conversion kit avaveibel ?
is a permanent enclosier avalible ?

by Gene Tedder from Florida on December 18, 2013

A: Thanks for your inquiry.....Generator manufacturers do not offer conversion kits or permanent enclosures for portable generators.

We at Power Equipment Direct do not recommend converting your gasoline portable generator to an alternative fuel and doing so will void the manufacturer’s warranty and may cause damage to the generator itself. These conversions are not recommended by any of the generator manufacturers.

Gasoline has an Ignition Point of 475–536 °F. When a generator is manufactured to run solely on gasoline these temperatures are taken into consideration and the engine components are made to handle these temperatures.

Propane (LP) has an Ignition Point of 920-1020°F and Natural Gas (NG) has an Ignition Point of 900–1500°F. These higher temperatures will cause damage over time on any “gas only” powered engine.

The following guidelines cover Honda engines (Also applies to other engine manufacturers) modified to run on fuels other than the one for which they were designed, such as converting an engine to run on propane (LP) or natural gas (NG).


• Honda gasoline engines are certified to operate on unleaded fuel with a pump octane rating of 86 or higher, containing no more than 10% ethanol (E10).

• Any change to the original configuration of a certified Honda engine is a potential violation of the Clean Air Act prohibition against tampering (40 CFR §1068.101(b)(1)). The tampering prohibition is important because poorly designed and installed modifications can increase emissions.

• The Clean Air Act prohibits anyone from removing or rendering inoperative any device or design element installed on engines in compliance with regulations. These actions are considered tampering, which carries a civil penalty up to $37,500 for each engine or equipment in violation.

• Engines converted by a third party (OEM, dealer, converter, etc.) to run on a different fuel type must be recertified with the EPA on the new fuel to comply with applicable emission standards. The third party must recertify under a new family and notify Honda to not include the modified engines in the original family.

• Converted engines to be sold for use in California must meet CARB requirements and the converter must obtain approval from CARB. EPA certificates or tampering exemptions will not satisfy the requirement for CARB certification.

• Once certified, the third party must remove the Honda emission control label and apply a compliant emission control label for the new fuel indicating the new certifying manufacturer. Honda will no longer assume any responsibility as the certifying manufacturer.

• The Honda Distributor's Limited Warranty does not extend to parts affected or damaged by the conversion to or use of fuel other than the fuel for which the engine was originally designed.


• Honda offers V-twin engines specifically designed and certified for use in LP/NG applications. The engines incorporate special design features that address the higher combustion temperatures and reduced lubrication to the valve guide area (since it is a dry fuel, not liquid). Please contact your sales representative or distributor for additional information.


Disclaimer: The guidance provided is intended for Honda dealer/distributor informational purposes only and not for the purpose of providing legal advice. You must contact the appropriate certifying agencies if you require information on how regulations apply to your specific application.

Q: Good morning Mike.

I am interested in the XG8000E and XG10000E units. Can you please tell me what tri-fuel adapter kit you recommend?

Q: Regarding the xg10000e, if you connect to the 50 amp outlet on the unit, can you still connect to the 30 amp outlets as well or the 50 amp connection cancels them out?
by Chris Gabb from Louisiana on August 24, 2013

A: It is not recommended to connect to 2 separate panels via the generators outlets due to causing off balanced loads on the alternator and damaging the generator and possibly the equipment you are connecting to it.

CAUTION: EQUIPMENT DAMAGE – Balanced Load

Failure to properly limit and balance the load applied to the generator will cause the generator to produce low voltage and may damage the engine generator set. It may also cause severe damage to the loads connected to the generator at that time. Improper loading of the generator set constitutes abuse and will not be covered by warranty.

Q: Would a 10,000 watt like the Generac XG10000E power a central air unit in the home. My main concern is the furnace in the winter along with other home items for extended periods, but wonder if it will power a Train A/C system?
by Rick Anderson from Ohio on July 05, 2012

A: Rick, it really depends on the size of your central air conditioner. Under most circumstances, this model might be a little small to run a 4- or 5-ton unit.

Q: What is the DB rating on the Generac XG10000E?
by George Ritko from North Carolina on June 27, 2012

A: Unfortunately, not all generator manufacturers publish the decibel ratings for their generators.

Currently, there are no industry standards or requirements for generator manufacturers to follow when testing their generators for noise.

Due to this, manufacturers can test the noise level under any conditions they choose and, therefore, the results are not very reliable as each company will test under conditions that are favorable to their products.

At this time there are no db(A) ratings available on this model.

Q: Jim,
I'm a licensed NH Electrician I have a Honeywell 7500Watt Portable Generator that will be used to supply selected loads in a non-separately derived residential application as outlined by the 2011 NEC. The tag on this generator indicated that the neutral is bonded to the frame. I need to know if this generator can be made into a floating neutral generator without voiding listings or warranty. If the answer is yes then where and how does the manufacture recommend the removal of the bond? And will the manufacture send a new label that indicates the generator is now a floating neutral generator. This will be an issue with any generator that has its neutral bonded to the frame portable or stationary. Any info that you can give me will be a great help.

Regards,

Ron T.

by Ron Tasker from New Hampshire on January 08, 2012

A: The manufacturer does not recommend removing the bonded neutral from the generator and neither do I and just about 97% of generators on the market have a bonded neutral.

If you need to break the neutral in the generator backup set-up then you need to go with a GFI type transfer switch such as the Reliance Controls "X" series switches.....see link for details.

Reliance 30A GFI Transfer Panels

Reliance 60A GFI Transfer Panels

Note: Typically these switches are not required unless the large transfer switch outlet on the generator is GFI protected which is found on Professional generators such as the Generac "XP" models and not the "XG" model.

The biggest thing, is the fact that a generator has a bonded-neutral does not rule out compatibility with 2-pole transfer switches. The only time that a portable generator will not be compatible with a 2-pole transfer switch is if the generator has a bonded-neutral AND there is a GFCI breaker or GFCI mechanism protecting the receptacle they are using to connect the generator to the transfer switch.

Code does not require switching the neutral, so using a bonded generator with a Pro/Tran is perfectly fine as long as there is not a GFCI built into the receptacle that is being used. If there is a GFCI, it won't work because the breaker trips.

Any time a bonded-neutral generator is connected through a transfer switch to a house wiring system, there are two neutral-to-ground bond points: one at the main panel and one at the generator.

Having two bond points creates 'dual paths' on the ground and neutral, aka "ground loop", meaning the ground wire from the generator to the house panel will share everything with the neutral wire from the generator to the house panel.

This leads to there being a very small amount of current on the ground. If there is a GFCI breaker tied into the generator receptacle, it will sense this current on the ground and trip every time the generator is connected, even under No load.

* If the generator does not have a GFCI protecting the in-use receptacle, there will not be a trip and the generator will power circuits
successfully.

A common argument against this is: "but the ground cannot have any voltage or current in any situation" - this is not true. The NEC states "the ground cannot carry 'objectionable' current".

The ground wire in question is the wire between the house panel and the generator, a small amount of power on this wire is not a safety concern in this type of application.

We have no record of a single injury, or a single inspection ever turned down, related to a bonded neutral generator connected to a home through a 2-pole transfer switch.

Note that this has been done historically for decades, using bonded generators without switching the neutral, ever since generators and transfer switches existed.

There was never a problem until about 10 years ago when generators started adding GFCI's (per OSHA job site requirements) and wiring them into the larger receptacles. GFCI's on the 15 amp 120v outlets are usually separate and not connected to the 4 wire 120/240 outlets, but it's a challenge to identify this without contacting the manufacturer. It varies greatly and is rarely specified in the owners manual.

The entire problem here is related strictly to the GFCI breakers built into bonded-neutral generators, not the fact the generator has the neutral bond alone. In knowing this, if we look at all of the portable generators that are bonded neutral, and then if we separate the models WITH a GFCI breaker protecting the 120/240 outlet, the percentage of these generators is extremely small. These are the only generators that will ultimately require a 3-pole transfer switch that breaks the neutral.

Breaking the neutral simply eliminates the ground loop (dual paths) between the generator and house panel created by having two bond points, and will eliminate the problem of the GFCI breaker tripping.

I hope this information was helpful.

Q: What is the maximum output in watts out of the NEMA 14-50R outlet I can get from a XP 10000E Generac Generator

Q: What transfer panel would I need to have with the XG10000e to run a well pump, electric hot water heater,washer and electric dryer, two sump pumps with some lighting . talked to a friend who said i would need 3 double pole 30 amp pole???
by Paul MacFadden from Pennsylvania on September 21, 2011

A: The best way to power these items is with a whole house type manual switch that is installed between your meter and main panel. This allows you to manage all your circuits without overloading the generator and is a very easy install. See link for recommended model for a 200A main service:

Reliance Controls - TWB2005DR

Q: On a small portable generator like the XG10000E, are the outlets standard, or can the buyer request what type of outlets they want?

A: The outlets are standard from the factory.
by Mike, Product Expert
Q: What does HP/CC mean? The specs say 530 cc. What would the HP be?
by Jackie Barrett from Oklahoma on January 26, 2011

A: There isn't a direct math correlation from CC's (cubic centimeters) to horsepower. Imagine a Chevy 350 cubic inch V-8 engine in a Corvette, depending on whether you have a carburetor fed engine or a fuel injected version, the power could be between 275HP - 400HP. The same logic occurs with small gasoline utility engines. Each is different enough that like CC displacements won't mean the same HP ratings from manufacturer to manufacturer.

As a "close enough" rule in the air cooled engine world, however, there is between 30-40cc per horsepower. For the 530cc engine, this would be around 15HP.
by Mike, Product Expert
Q: How does this generator start in cold weather with the electric start? What is the difference between OHV engine & Generac's OHVI engine?
by Daryl Hammond from Ohio on January 17, 2011

A: Portable generators are normally stored inside and the B&S 30471 comes with a float style battery charger which is plugged into the generator when not in use. This allows the generator battery to have a sufficient charge when the generator is needed to start.

An OHV (Overhead Valve) engine is compact designed and generally makes the unit operate quieter. The Generac OHVI (Overhead Valve Industrial) engine is built robustly with premium power and high performance and comes with a fully pressurized oil lubrication system and spin-on filter.

I bought a Generac XG 10000E to power a tool I use to seam single ply membrane roofs. The tool requires uninterrupted high wattage. I bought the generator put oil and gas in it and it started right up. Ran it all day the first day out with no problems. The next 2 days ran it for about 1/2 a day with no problems. It was well worth the money and seems to be a real answer to what I need in the area of power.

This is a definite buy. I'd buy it again. PRS Roofing Contractor

Went Up In Smoke At 0.8 Hours Without Anything Plugged In
I was happy with this generator when I received it last month, unpacked it, went through the minor setup (like oil), started it the first time, and ran it for 0.8 hours (according to the meter).

The second time I ran it, even though I didn't have anything plugged into any receptacles, after about 15 minutes there was a loud popping sound and smoke started streaming out of the four 120 V receptacles.

Yesterday I took it to Generac's authorized service shop as Generac's service hotline told... more

What A Luxury
I feel very fortunate that I got my Generac well before the storm hit. I see that as I write this review in the wake of Hurricane Sandy, these are on back order- I'm not surprised. It took a couple of weeks before my electrician could get to me to install the transfer switch. In fact, he finished the installation two hours before the power went out from Hurricane Sandy.

Purchase was easy. Delivery was on time and there was no damage to the packaging or the generator.

Assembly was easy.... more

The web site says that this generator will do 12,500 starting watts. It can't. I asked them why it wouldn't start the air conditioner in the small office trailer we were renting. Our electrician said that it needed 12,000 watts to start the air. When asked about this the company said - Generally none of our generators has enough power to start an air conditioner.

Dwayne,
Providing as much information as possible is very important when trying to size a generator for your application. AC units can vary from small window units to large 5-Ton units. Generac states this unit provides 12,500 surge watts. This generaotor has a 2 year residential and 1 year commercial warranty. If you think that your generator is not putting out that much power, you would have to take it to a Generac service center.

So Far, Pretty Good
It may yet be some time before my electrician sets up my house to be powered by it, but I have confidence that all will be well.

I did have a problem connecting the battery. The manual's instructions only spoke of needing to make one connection to the battery but I saw no connection already made. I did find two dangling wires (tied together) -- one red, one black -- so I separated them and connected them to the red and black terminals of the battery, respectively. This produced sparks... more

Glad I Went Portable Instead Of Stand-by
I was undecided between a portable generator and a stand-by. After hearing from a neighbor how much propane they went through each time there was an outage I opted for this Generac. I was unsure if it would really power everything I wanted it to, even though I went through each circuit and the numbers worked. I installed a manual transfer switch as part of the solution in order to power our well and septic pumps, heat pump etc. We recently had a planned outage from our utility company so it was... more

Generic Generator
This is an easy to use generator. I especially like the power meter and the LED lights on the control panel. It was shipped very fast and setup was quick and easy. Once I filled it with fuel it started right up and ran perfectly.

More Watts That I Needed But....
I really ordered a model that is more than I needed, I do want to, in time, rewire my whole house and then I can plug my house into the power unit when I loose electric to my home.
