Why Propane?

Consider These Options When Choosing A Generator Which Best Suits Your Needs

Propane vs. Gasoline Portability

Gasoline generators are typically more portable than LP generators. Gasoline generators have on-board tanks, but a propane unit must be powered by piping propane in from an exterior tank. Propane units may be a bit bigger than comparable gasoline generators.


Propane burns cleaner than natural gas. Carbon monoxide emissions range between 20% to 40% lower. Although burning propane puts 10% more methane into the atmosphere, the result is still a net decrease in effective greenhouse gases.


Propane will not degrade, so you can keep several propane tanks on hand and store them for an unlimited amount of time. Gasoline has a more limited shelf life and will deteriorate over time. Gasoline tends to go bad if it is not used in a timely manner. A propane generator will start more easily in extremely cold weather because the fuel will not gum up.


Fuel prices fluctuate for both propane and gasoline. A propane generator needs a more expensive pressurized tank.


Gasoline spills contaminate and leave stains and odors; propane will dissipate into the air. Propane is naturally odorless, but a distinct but harmless odor is added to warn of leaks.
