Product Questions Answered by Jared, the Generator Expert
Can this run off the 20lb tanks that we use for BBQ? I see that you say it can run off any size tank in a previous question but I am not sure that it can connect right to the BBQ tanks. I am looking for a portable generator that could run even just our heating system. My electrician had shown me the generac models, but I am not sure if that is safe with my Quietside burner. I looked throughout that manual but I don't see anything about THD in it. Last year when my area lost power we couldn't even buy gas for our cars so I was trying to find another alternative.

Winco HPS9000VE......I currently have a Weber natural gas barbeque being fed by 50 feet of 3/4" CSST Flexible Tubing. If I disconnect the barbeque and connect this generator will it receive enough pressure to operate properly?

Will this generator (HPS12000HE) deliver full rated power while operating on Propane?

I'm needing a home back up generator that I can also use for hunting camp. Can either the 5500 watt or the 8000 watt model be run of off 100lb and 20lb tanks? What is the LP consumption of both at half and full load?
