Default Recommended source for propane conversion

I hope this is the best section of the forum to ask about a recommended propane conversion. I have an old Honda G80 on a E3500 generator. I have come across several on the web. Thanks.

To properly convert a gasoline engine to LP you need to install a higher compression piston(s) otherwise you will see upt 20% loss in HP.
