I agree that multi-fuel looks like the way to go. Even with a fuel stabilizer, I could not believe the coating of yellowish residue on everything. My only concern w/ propane is the associated power loss. At this point I'm going to empty both carb and tank on Generator after using and keep a 2 gallon container on hand and recycle into family vehicles every 4 weeks to maintain a reasonably fresh supply of fuel. Most of our power outages are 2-3 hours so the 2 gallons will suffice. Anything longer and I'll siphon out of my truck.

My son found out about how useless a gasoline generator is during Hurricane Sandy-long,long lines to get a single can of expensive, cash-only gasoline. Now he has a tri-fuel generator like mine.
