Looking for words of wisdom/advise for accessory fuels.
The plan/use case:
2Kva Solar with supporting batteries
Combination of boon docking/dry camp sites (mostly) and improved connected sites
The idea is to have the batteries charge via alternator, solar and 30amp 110v when plugged in and then run whatever possible on 12vdc or 110vac when a 12vdc solution is not available.
Appliances that I will have are:
- Furnace (propane, diesel)
- Water heater (propane)
- Cook/Stove top (propane)
- Refrigerator (DC/AC/propane)
- Generator - undecided (propane/diesel
- *AC Unit (shore/generator power only)
The question is:
What's the best option for fuels? I want to reduce the number of aux fuels I carry - diesel would be great but water heaters would be difficult to come by, generators will be noisy and costly, cook tops will be a no-go (haven't seen any diesel cook tops (multi-fuel camp stoves yes).
Propane can fuel them all, but it requires additional infrastructure and under-frame space is limited.
Looking at the list now that it's written out, it seems propane is the way to go, but I am looking for wisdom/experience for other options.
I also might be putting in propane to inject into the engine to cool it down and increase the diesel burn rates (more power/less fuel)
