Does this Yamaha generator use mixed gasoline?
Pete 
from New York 
February 08, 2017
Answer
Yamaha recommends using 86 Octane fuel or higher. This unit does not require any mixing of gasoline or oil. Owner's Manual.

Can this be converted for propane use?
Peter G. 
from California 
December 15, 2016
Answer
Yamaha does not offer a fuel conversion for any of their generators and adding an aftermarket one will void the warranty.

I have a customer running propane on a Yamaha genset. While burning propane the engine burns excessive oil, not a problem on gasoline. Any ideas?
Shane Bland 
from Florida 
June 24, 2014
Answer
The Yamaha portable generators are engineered and warranted to operate on gasoline only. The reason your customer is burning through oil is due to the excessive temperatures of the unit.

Gasoline burns at 485 degrees F whereas propane burns at 1008 degrees F which will cause excessive heat within the engine in turn burning off the engine oil.

If I buy a Yamaha EF3000i for work an play. My question is if I use the gen to charge my 12 volt 100 amp battery, how long would it take? And would using the gen be more efficient and time saving rather than getting solar panels or a wind gen to charge the batteries when using batteries for power?
Ron Jolin 
from Minnesota 
February 05, 2013
Answer
This power source is designed to charge batteries up to 40 Ah (Amp hours) that are half-discharged. Do not charge batteries of a higher capacity then 40 Ah.

12VDC Battery

The time required for recharging a battery varies depending on the discharge level of the battery. When the specific gravity of the battery reaches 1.26 to 1.28, charging is complete. When charging, check the battery's specific gravity once an hour.

The average time for charging a half-discharged 40 Ah battery is approximately 5 hours. Be sure to check the battery fluid level before charging.

Notice:
**Do not connect any load to the battery or use the engine starter motor while charging. This causes higher current to flow through the generator which will burn out the coil.
**Do not connect a VRLA (Valve Regulated Lead Acid) battery. To Charge a VLRA battery, a special (constant-voltage) battery charger is required.

I am trying to decide whether I should get the Yamaha EF300iS or the iSEB boost model. I know these are aimed at the RV/Camping market, but I am planning to use as emergency power at my house and like these for the quiet operation and long run times between refueling when compared to others. I would be planning to run about a 5 amp small freezer, a 10 amp refrigerator, and about a 10 amp single room air conditioner. Since the refrigerator and freezer only run intermittently I think this generator will run that load.. and if needed I can unplug the freezer overnight when the room air conditioner will be used. So is the boost technology worth it for this sort of application? I won't be starting any one large motor like the RV air conditioners I keep seeing mentioned for the iSEB but rather intermittently starting these smaller motors.
Alan Felsen

Answer
Alan, air conditioners require a lot of electricity to turn over - regardless if they are window units or RV units.

If you insist on getting a Yamaha, go with the boost version to make sure the air conditioner works.

Our recommendation, however, is to get a larger emergency generator designed for power outages instead of camping. It'll be cheaper and power more things.
