Here is the link to a video I made of taking this Costco Generator and converting it to run on tri-fuel from a kit I bought on US Carb. Enjoy!

For anyone interested, I picked up an extra fuel can from here, was the best price for an excellent rated design:
Also got the extension to make it easier to pout into the tank:

Picked this up, thanks OP
Looking into the trifuel kit from uscarbs.com - it will add approx $250 to the cost, but almost priceless when you figure it allows for an endless fuel supply.... I do plan on picking up an extra 5 gallon fuel container and keeping some gas stored (with stabilizer) as well, just in case. I figure I can dump it in my truck every 2 months and refill to ensure it doesn't go bad.
Overkill? probably. PITA? yes. But i'll be happier than I was during Sandy the next time something happens.

can someone please help me decide
I know this is a good price for what it is but I really need one that I can connect to my natural gas line so I dont have to worry about running out of fuel.
I found this http://www.powerlandon
Item #: PDN6500E powerland
for 800$ shipped it is a bit weaker but it has natural gas and comes to my home free shipping not tax
vs. Costco which is stronger but I have to pick it up in store plus tax for 600$ or pay extra 100$ online and still have to get a tri fuel kit which costs another 200$ from uscarb.com with installation.
I just need it for the basics in th house 2 fridge freezers , TV, and gas water heater everything under 5K most probably.
So should I go with the link from powerland? does anyone know a better deal for me a generator with natural gas?

|c_nitty||Slick deal I paid alittle more for a used generator with 7550 watts.|

Seems like a waste if you don't ring out the full 7000watts
I also like to throw this link out there for these type thread.

i would run it a few hours in the morning to cool the fridge down and run the heat to warm up the house. then a few hours at night (again to cool the fridge and run heat) and put on a few lights. by 10PM turn it off so i don't annoy the neighbors (it is loud). but then again all the neighbors come over to charge their cell phones and eat some hot food so i guess they can't complain.
also the deal is available B&M only. The online price is higher (Already includes the $150 off) since it includes S&H.

$70 a day to run this hoss at 50% during a power outage. .72 of a gallon/hour @ $4/gallon * 24 hours.
Better hope the gas station has power, so you can go buy the 17 gallons of gas for it.
But when you need to run everything and sit like a king, this is it.

Thank you for pointing that out.
I'll remember not to post, next time.
