What is a Tri–Fuel Generator?
Tri-Fuel generators, sometimes called Triple-Fuel generators, are generators that run on propane, natural gas and gasoline right out of the box. No mechanical alterations are required. To switch between propane and natural gas just turn the lever on selector valve located above the low-pressure regulator (depending on the model). Changing between fuel sources is simple and the convenience of having the option of using three different fuels to power your home during a power outage gives homeowners peace of mind. No longer limited to gasoline, which is difficult to store and hard to come by when you need it. Natural gas on the other hand is the most convenient choice of fuel since refueling is unnecessary. Just plug the hose into your home’s natural gas outlet and tap into a virtually endless supply. Propane is another convenient option since it can be stored for long periods of time and it is easier to find than gasoline during a power outage. Gasoline is still an option if no other fuel sources are available.
