    Q:Can this generator be converted to natural gas?
    by|Feb 13, 2024
    2 Answers
    Answer This Question

    A:  Hi Gary! No, Westinghouse does not authorize any type of fuel conversion to its generators. Converting a Westinghouse generator to run on fuel it was not designed for will void your warranty. We do offer a few larger open frame generators that operate on natural gas as well as gasoline and propane. If you have any further questions, please don't hesitate to reach out to us at support@wpowereq.com or 1-855-944-3571 and we'd be happy to assist you!

    by|Feb 14, 2024

      A:  Hi Gary, we do not recommendation of utilizing a natural gas conversion kit as it voids the warranty and can cause damage or harm to the unit or the operator. If you are interested in a natural gas-powered generator, we recommend our WGen9500TFc Tri-Fuel Generator, https://www.homedepot.com/p/Westinghouse-12-500-9-500-Watt-Tri-Fuel-Gas-Propane-Natural-Gas-Powered-Portable-Generator-with-Remote-Electric-Start-50A-Outlet-WGen9500TFc/324919953

          Inverter generator
          My wife and I live in mariposa California the last storm dropped a big oak tree across our driveway. Pulling down the powerline. PG&E could not get here for two days, so we pluged in our generator, which promptly quit on us! I immediately got online and went through numerous reviews and decided on a Westinghouse inverter generator. My wife and I are extremely happy we did because this thing works amazing. Started on the first pole and runs nice and quiet, unlike our old conventional generator it also supplies, the perfect amount of power that we need. We’ve used it three times so far and are extremely happy with it!

            Just what we need.
            We bought this to use with our Travel trailer. We chose it because it had enough power to run everything in our Travel trailer without being annoyingly loud. We can hardly wait to give it a try.

                          Have had several Westinghouse Generators , Wanted this one as its the quieter Inverter type , with cleaner power. Also this model line has been out for about 5 years so spare parts should be available for many years. Started right up after putting in oil and securing battery , Only Gripe is a little shipping Damage - but that seems like the way it is unfortunately when shipping. There Warranty support is usually pretty good resolving issues. Will primarily be using this as a home back up , my old one was a traditional open frame DF5300 - good generator but loud. would recommend !

                            Powerful, Quiet, Easy to Transport!
                            The Westinghouse name brand, 3 year parts warranty, and great reviews led me to purchase this product. I have loaded it up with many different appliances and it purrs like a kitten. It's reasonably quiet between 65 - 83 DB, you can hold a conversation next to it without any problems. Much quieter than my non-inverter generator. Weighing a little over 100 pounds I am surprised at how easy it is to move with the built in retractable handle and it doesn't feel that heavy if you have to lift it using built in lift handles. A lot of thought went into its design and it is very easy to access serviceable parts. I like the supplied oil funnel as it screws in the oil filler tube which ensures oil will not spill when filling, unlike those other funnels that have a tendency to pop out at the wrong time. However the best part of this generator, is the informative lcd panel. It toggles between 5 screens. The screen I use the most is the one that shows the power load the generator is pulling. In addition to the 5 LCD informative screens, it has an ever present percent of fuel remaining gauge and a percent of load indicator in 25% increments. Very easy to read. One feature that could be improved is to have the ability to change the remaining fuel display from Liters to Gallons remaining, however this is not a deal killer. If you do not use the built in battery to start the generator, the pull handle starts it up in one or two pulls and the remote start key fob works great! This generator, like others, also has an auto shut off if the load exceeds the generator capacity or the oil level is too low. It also has a charger so you can top off the built in battery monthly if the generator is not being used. Well thought out, three ways to start it, easy to transport, perfect compact size. I highly recommend this product!
