LPG / Petrol dual fuel generator
The EM5500 delivers clean power with extended run time, making it ideal for a wide range of demanding applications from home equipment backup to powering equipment out in the fi eld. Smooth power is achieved with AVR technology maintaining a constant output voltage, compensating for fl uctuations when the equipment starts up or the load changes. This helps provide a stable power source vital for running sensitive electronic devices safely. Multiple outlet sockets with switchable voltage allow you to run different appliances and the large fuel tank, effi cient 4-stroke engine and Honda’s EcoThrottle maximise running time.

Why should I choose a LPG Dual Fuel option instead of petrol or diesel?
An LPG dual fuel option refers to the conversion of petrol engine to run on either LPG or petrol. Petrol engines weigh less, produce lower emissions and are inexpensive to purchase, in comparison to diesel engines. Although, they have much higher running costs. Diesels are more fuel efficient, but weigh more, produce much greater emissions and are comparitively more expensive to purchase.
LPG essentially enables the user to purchase a lower costing, lighter, lower emission petrol engine and also have the low running costs of a diesel. Advantages include;
•Up to 50% reduction in running costs in comparison to petrol
•60% lower CO2 emissions in comparison to petrol allows a more environmentally friendly operation.
•Due to the lower carbon content of LPG, consumables such as spark plugs and oil have extended life.
•Running times can be extended with the use of larger LPG bottles.
•Safer to use, as LPG avoids the hazard of having to refill a hot engine with highly flammable fuel.
•An LPG conversion means there is no danger of fuel contamination or fuel going stale in the carburettor, a common problem with petrol.
•Re-fuelling is made easier, as the user simply needs to re-connect a new cylinder bottle
Can I run my engine on Butane or a Propane / Butane mixture?
LPG can be propane, butane or a mixture. Because propane is the most common LPG type in the UK, we have designed this kit with a jet size to run on Propane gas only. This allows the kit to run perfectly with no adjustments, when operating on propane. On request, we can supply the kit with an adjustable jet allowing the user to adjust the mixture according to their specific fuel type.
My LPG bottle connection is different. Can a LPG regulator be supplied to fit my european LPG bottle?
For international customers, we can only supply this LPG kit with one type of european bottle regulator connection. Unfortunately, each country uses a different bottle connection to to fit LPG bottles and therefore it is very difficult for us to supply a bottle connection for each country. If this does not suit your LPG bottle, then we can supply the LPG kit with no bottle regulator. Then you should be able source the regulator locally that matches the LPG bottle in your country and easily connect it to the kit.
