Yes it seems to be.

Stainless steel flexible exhaust (without generator)

Merkmal ► gezielte Ableitung der Abgase und zusätzliche Lärmreduzierung.
Usage: Controlled removal of the gasses and as an extra noise reduction.

Material ► hochwertiger Edelstahl
Material: High quality Stainless steel

Besonderheiten► flexibel nur für Honda Stromerzeugermodelle EX 7, EU 10i und EU 20i

Zusätzliche ► Informationen ermöglicht den Betrieb in geschlossenen Räumen bei Gewährleistung von ausreichender Zu- und Abluft. Zusätzliche Geräuschreduzierung!

Did we really get through three pages of discussion about Honda generators without anyone mentioning that you can get a Brand X genset that is "just like the Honda" for a third the price? Congratulations.

Yup; we did.

And despite all of the comments for and against propane, nobody has mentioned the exploding, bilge-stored Honda.

I would hope that we could. After all the original post was not related to the performance of a Honda or it's price, therfore not inviting comparisons. I know I know sometimes that dosen't matter :)

Just as on vehicles any gas storage cylinder whether steel or fiberglass has to be recertified. It gets costly for removal, testing and reinstallation if required.
Here in Calgary I work at ATCO Gas and our fleet runs on Nat Gas. All our trucks by law must have tank inspection and recertification every 2 years. They are also very picky as to the location where tanks are mounted.
If tanks were a permanent mount on a boat I'm sure rigid rules would apply.

All warehouse forklifts run on propane. The engine life is extended by a factor of at least 4 and the propane combustion emits less CO. Thats why they're used extensivly indoors in warehouses. I've had forklifts in my warehouse run in excess of 18,000 hrs yes that's 18,000 hrs.
Another plus is there is no E10 fuel seperaton with propane. The storage tank for propane holds at least 10 times the stock capasity of the EU2000. So you'd have to refill the Eu2000 less times. It is a little less powerful but in vehicles it was remeded by slightly higher compression ratios. International, ford and Gm marketed trucks that ran on propane back in the 60's and 70's when propane was cheaper than gas. These trucks all came with high compression engines for propane. So there might be an advantage to this setup.
