I'm sure it can be done. I did a search and there are conversion kits available for smaller engines. Would have to do a little more research for an engine this size. I know that this is a very good price for this unit so even if it cost a couple of grand it would be worth it. Unit came from a large dairy farm that uses methane harvested from manure to generate electricity. They upgraded to a larger unit.

Do you know if it can be converted to propane?
That would only involve changing the jet sizes-- just like on a kitchen range/oven. The question is-- do they make that jet for this particular unit?

NG is easy to get if you're in the big city, but for rural locations, you'd need propane.

I figure the Amish guy who owns this was running a General Motors assembly plant in his shed and needed a few extra kWs than a 35 lb Honda could supply.
