I'm curious: How long can you run one of those on a 20# tank of propane?

20lb tank of propane is about 4.7 gallons. So it will run for just about the same time as 4 gallons of gasoline will run since propane has a little less BTUs. So 30 hours or so at 1/4 rated load. Heavier continual load = less time obviously.

FWIW, my Yamaha2400 seems to easily run my A/C as well. My personal opinion is that the Yamaha is under rated for output as I have metered mine at above its rated output using space heaters when I first bought it. The 2400 has the same displacement motor as its 3000 watt bigger brother. This seems to make the 2400 struggle less under heavy loads. At least that is my guess.

I found it on Kijiji ( cdn Craigslist)
It's a couple years old.

This is the replacement. It is better at high amp startup loads.
76lbs.

I was looking at the new one, but got the used one for less than half.
So, I went with it.

Looks cool. Just one question, did you put the poles out before or after parking the car?

I ordered mine with the black powder coat for the other reason. The DW and I love to play at night the "Who just cussed and will it leave a mark game".


Seems Bob has put an end to that game with his modification. I like it.
