Propane vs. gasoline generators

You can count on Taylor Gas to provide you with dependable, safe propane delivery so that your generator will be there when you need it.

Why is propane a better choice for a generator than gasoline? Reliability and safety.

Gasoline degrades over time, which means that the gasoline you’re storing for your portable generator may not be usable when you need it. And if you leave gasoline in the generator’s tank, it could lead to the generator failing. Propane doesn’t degrade, so when your whole-house generator kicks on, it will work.

Propane is safer for both you and the environment. You don’t have to worry about handling gasoline. And, unlike gasoline, propane is harmless to the environment in the rare event of a leak.

Portable vs. whole-house backup generators

Portable generators have some distinct disadvantages compared with whole-house backup generators.

First, they’re not great for long-term outages. If your home is without power for more than a day, you may not have enough fuel on hand to keep your generator running. If traveling is hazardous, you may not be able to get out for more fuel.

Second, you need to be on hand. If you’re away from home when the power goes out, a portable generator is useless, because it doesn’t automatically turn on the way a whole-house backup generator does.

Third, a portable generator needs to be a safe distance from the house, which means you’re heading outside in possibly dangerous conditions to move it, turn it on or refuel it.
