    I just got a 3500W propane powered generator. I haven't used it yet, does anyone have any tips or good/bad things to say about them? Apparently they're alot quieter and don't cost as much to run.

    Looks like 10 hours on a 20lb tank.
    Says operating noise is 68 db. Don't think that's too much of an improvement over the gas ones.
