Dual Fuel Power from Cummins
Dual fuel generators give you the best of both worlds by allowing for maximum versatility. However, gasoline gives you a little more power and is conveniently stored in the onboard 6.6-gallon fuel tank. It will even run for up to 16 hours on just a single tank.
While the onboard tank will keep you filled for a while, many choose propane because it is easier. There is some truth, as gasoline is messy, and storing it can be a little more challenging. However, the benefit is that it is a more powerful fuel, allowing it to output a higher wattage.
But a propane tank can be much easier to store and transport because it is in a sealed tank. Plus, you don't have to worry about dumping fuel into the generator's tank. But the biggest benefit is that you can connect to a large propane tank for extended periods of use. This is perfect for homes that rely on propane or even those with a large propane tank.
Switching between gasoline and propane is super easy and requires just the turn of a knob. The knob lets you switch between gasoline, propane, and storage mode. When you're done using the generator for a while, just start it up and flip the switch to storage mode to remove any excess fuel in the carburetor.
