Can this unit be converted to operate on LP?

If it can be converted, what is the process and cost to get it converted? If not, does Generac have a product that runs on LP?

Customer Reviews

16,000-Watt Air Cooled Automatic Standby Generator with 100 Amp 16-Circuit Pre-Wired Transfer Switch is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 10.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Generac 16000 watt generator. We have had this Generac for 6 months and have had it come into service once. Worked great. Started in cold weather with no problem.
Date published: 2017-01-24
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Inadequate LP flex coupling shipped inside my generator. The LP flex coupling shipped inside my generator is 1/2" ID and this generator requires a 1" ID LP flex coupling. I had to buy the correct coupling at a cost of $45.00. Will you help me recover this expense from Home Depot?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Feeling comforted Had installed last week & have not needed to use however, the test ran for the first time today at 4:00 as programmed and ran for 5 minutes, 9 seconds. Was much quieter than we expected (as compared to our neighbor's which is older) So far so good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from All you need I have had this model in service for eight years now and it has never failed to start on its own whenever the power drops out and it easily powers my 2460 square ft house.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product! Easy to install After review numerous options I settled for the Generac 16kw. Great product and well built! Made in the USA! It was very easy to install and just as easy to use. Operation is effortless! Basically it's off, manual, or Auto operation! Well thought out for oil changes and maintenance!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 16KW rock solid I have had this 16KW generator for over 5 years. Hurricane Ike blew through Ohio just after install. No power for 3 days ran very well. I had other outages lasting over a week long and still no problems. It is an easy install if you are handy with gas and electricity. You need friends to move it to the pad.
