The Duromax xp10000eh has a dual fuel system that operates on either standard gasoline or cleaner burning liquid propane which can more than double you generator's run time. With the xp10000eh, operating on propane will not gum up or foul your generator's carburetor and will give you quick, reliable starts. It only takes a few seconds to switch over from regular gas to propane and with the flexible line, you can easily hook up any size propane tank including the one from your barbeque. When the ambient temperature is under 40 degrees propane by nature contracts and the pressure within the cylinder is not powerful enough to push enough gas into the carburetor to start the engine. The solution to this is to start the engine on gasoline for a few minutes and then switch over to propane.

- I am not a propane expert, but I've had to learn a lot about it in the last month. At the earlier event in May where we ran it for 10 hours, I noticed the propane tank freezing on the outside and eventually the genset quit running. I thought we ran out of propane. Hooked up another 20 pound tank and shortly the same thing happened. Those backyard grill tanks are not big enough to run this generator. Please understand that is NOT fault of the generator. I won't get in to BTUs, boiling points, vaporization and tank size because there are too many "experts" that will pick that stuff apart. So, I recommend going to propane101.com and learn as much as you can if you don't already know how propane works. I will say that so far from my limited knowledge, research and experience to date with this generator, I've found that it works great with a 100 pound propane tank. It may work okay on a 40 pound tank, but I chose 100 based on my research. If you have a larger LP tank installed for your home, you won't have any problem at all, but you'll still need to know what is needed to hook this up to your home tank. I would call my local LP dealer.
- We will not use gasoline in this generator. By not using gasoline we will never have to worry about the carburetor getting gummed up and therefore it should always start when we want it to.
- We are using this generator to power two commercial bouncy houses, hotdog steamer, popcorn popper, cotton candy machine, a small old timey fridge (not one of the newer no-compressor types), crock pot, various lights, 900 watt sound board with powered speakers, and a little phone charging station.
- I would definitely recommend one of these as backup power for home and for the way we are using it.
when power to house was out due to power line down. It ran for about 1/2 hour fine and then stopped. When I went to restart it locked up and no longer would turn over. With only a parts warranty left, I took engine head off and engine piston has a hole it and exhause valve is missing with only the sten left in head. So, now I am out of a generator and cannot return it, only have parts covered under warranty. I would gladly return it and donate it to amazon. I have no plans to ever buy my next generator from amazon and my son will not buy one from them either.
Update: Called Amazon and offered to donate it to them.....Was extremely surprised that they refunded my money and that I didnt have to return it. Well, with this kind of customer service, I will certainly continue to be a customer of amazon.
I also own one of the smaller DuroMax generators (4400) and was impressed enough with it after 100 hours to get the big one. They both have some similar issues that don't affect function, but are really just fit and finish issues and some convenient touches that the more expensive units would generally have.
Here are my suggestions for whoever is building/importing these units:
Put the oil inlet and dipstick in a more convenient place and make it easier to change the oil with a drain versus having to tip the thing over.
Since it is permanently installed, make it so the inlet for the propane hose is not 1" from the tire, and provide a place to hook or hang the hose so it's not just dangling around and/or touching the hot engine.
Someplace in the owner's manual or unit, state how much oil it takes... perhaps I'm blind, but no luck so far, other than filling it to the fill line.
Correct either the sticker on the side of the unit or the owner's manual regarding choke. The sticker says to NEVER engage the choke when using LPG, and ALWAYS to engage the choke when using gasoline. The owner's manual says essentially the opposite, though with steps along the way. Judging by how it runs with the respective fuels, I think the manual is correct, sort of.
This is a unit in which you'll need a little common sense to use it as there's not an automatic fuel transfer switch, but as long as you think before you do things you'll have reliable, clean power in my experience.
