Frequently Asked Questions

Customer Questions

Do you offer installation services or do I have to install the kit myself?

We do offer installation services.  However, if you have a basic understanding of engines and fuel systems, you will have no problem installing it yourself.

What kind of installation instructions do you send with your kits?

Every kit includes an installation guide with images and instructions.

How long does it take to install a kit?

Most kits can be installed easily and quickly – within a couple of hours; should your kit include a safety solenoid, it will take a little bit longer.

What does a safety solenoid do?

Should the engine stop, the safety solenoid will shut-off the fuel supply, even if the key is on.  This option is mandatory for indoor use or if you want to remotely start an engine (e.g. for a power generator).

How do I determine whether to use propane or natural gas?

It depends upon which fuel is readily available, how portable your equipment is, and whether or not you intend to use the equipment in remote areas.

We can provide kits that use propane, natural gas, or both.  In many cases, we also offer a tri-fuel version that allows you to switch among gasoline, propane and natural gas.

Will my equipment still be able to run on gasoline?

For most cases, the answer is yes.

Can I connect my generator to the gas line in my house or do I have to use a propane cylinder?

You can do either or both.  In some cases, you may need to add a high-pressure regulator and hose assembly in order to hook it up to a portable cylinder.  You could disconnect the high-pressure regulator and hose assembly at any time and reconnect it to the fuel lines inside the house.  You can also configure your kit to run off a large propane bulk tank.

Buyer F.A.Q.

What is the price of a conversion kit?

Before we can provide you with the price of a conversion system, we need to know more about the application and/or engine that you have.  One of of the more common kits that we sell is for a Briggs & Stratton 10 HP engine.  The price is about $195 for a low-pressure, natural gas or propane kit.  A high-pressure propane kit averages about $225 – $250.  A tri-fuel kit adds another $25 to the price of a high-pressure kit.

How much does a Safety Solenoid cost?

Typically, a safety solenoid will add about $75 to $150 to the price of a conversion kit.

How long will it take to get my kit?

Each kit is built to order; however, because we have a large inventory, we can produce about 2,000 kits at any given time.  So, we should be able to ship your kit within a day or two from the time you place your order.

What should I do after I receive my kit?

In a timely manner, you should review all documentation and check that your kit is complete.  Should any item be missing, please contact us.  Prior to installation, you should also check that all of the other preparations for the application are complete (e.g. fuel lines are routed, engine is properly adjusted/tuned, etc).  Should you experience any concerns, please contact us at (952) 445-3910.

What do you need to know about my application/engine when I place my order?

We will need to know about the application (e.g. generator, lawn mower, saw, etc).  We’ll also need to know the make, model, rated horsepower, and style of air cleaner of the engine… is it an electric start or is it a recoil start?  What type of fuel… natural gas or propane?

Typically, a natural gas line inside the house has 4 ounces of pressure; a propane gas line inside the house has 6 ounces of pressure; a bulk propane tank has 10 pounds of pressure; and a portable propane cylinder ranges from 10 pounds (-20 F) to 225 pounds (120 F) of pressure, dependent upon the external temperature.
