I have a few kits from Hutch Mountain and from US Carburetion. Both kits work great and both companies have provided me with excellent customer service when I needed it. I think Hutch Mountain's website is easier to navigate for me.

My tri-fuel kits are installed on a 5500 watt open frame genset, on a Honda eu3000is, and on 3 separate 2000 watt inverters.

I like hutch mountains configuration. If I convert my eu2000 or 2200 it’ll be hutch mountain.

the hutch works ok on the 2000 and 2200 hondas.
for the larger gens like the eu7000is go with the us carb setup.

Thanks everyone. I ordered the Hutch Mountain kit for the EU2200. Going to keep the EU7000 on gasoline for now. No NG on this side of the street. Expensive to bore under it to get it on this side.

what are they talking on price?
here they are happy to set new lines up on a property.
i think it was 50 bucks on my end of the install.
they covered the rest up to the meter.
that was at 150 foot run from the line at the street.
yes on the bore under the street...
and 2 pits dug.
they did a vibe knife setup on the rest of the run.

this is the time of the year to have NG gas lines ran....
not as much usage in the summer.
so the 2-3 hours with the local gas turned off on your street if they need to works better for them.

It was over $1000, $1100 if I remember correctly. The plumber was $1500 flat rate. Heck, at this point I'd run a temporary gas line above ground from the street meter to the generator, about 60 feet, If they'd let me. I have no other gas needs, only this. They might not even install it because of that. No usage!

your property will be worth more if the utility is ran up to the house.
well think gas grill etc.

wow!
so the new run would only be 60 feet to the house?
