As far as red diesel, any truck stop has it and you can also find it at farm stations that cater to farm equipment.

You know I was thinking of switching it to a carb but finding information on going from propane to gas is only resulting in information on going from gas to propane.

I don't mind the propane for temp usage, for that I understand it's quite reliable and probably the best low maintenance option.

I'm considering a tri fuel kit but all the ones I have found are for gas units, ideally i'd like to be able to run gas and then switch to propane to run the residual fuel out so that the carb doesn't get clogged from this horrible ethanol fuel that is more polluting than regular 100% gas.

There is one station near me that sells regular gas and it is so hard to find non ethanol that gas scares me because the ethanol is what causes the varnishing issues and the breakdown of the carbs internals because it is so caustic.

You have some great points, thanks for the reply!

My mind is open to new technology but as I said, "I'd have to see in person to believe it" If it works I'd be inline to buy one. I just have my doubts.

Well there is new technology that works, perhaps they will adapt a fuel cell for the generator.

You guys are so nitpicky.
If this is what i'd have to look forward to at an irv2 rally, count me out.

The "Positive, hopeful people that dream of better things for this world" that I think you are speaking of are the ones that you read about having been conned out of their life's savings by shysters . . . .

Having said that, I think that most of the "negative" people on this forum are just asking for actual FACTS, and PROOF of this manufacturers claims. Those items are suspiciously lacking in their website and other advertising that I've been able to find . . . .

I would absolutely LOVE for this to turn out to be the real deal! But for me to be convinced that it IS the "real deal", I would insist on PROOF.

Call me "negative!", I've been called MUCH worse!

Regarding the "Red" diesel, most truck stops carry it for use in refrigerator trucks that have a separate fuel tank for their refer units.
