Natural gas Webers

Post by Simmo »

There always seems to be a couple of these on Gumtree or ebay, was just wondering what is required for these to be converted back to lpg?

Just guessing but I would say LPG jets and a new hose and regulator

I don't have a gasser at all, only charcoal bbq's. If I can save some money when I eventually do pick one up, that to me would be worth the effort.

To convert a weber gasser from LPG to natural gas
Requires a different manifold, hose, regulator
Weber charge approx $200 to have this service performed by their technician

Best wait out on a LPG model to be listed if natural gas isn't an option for you.

We have a natural gas weber genesis and it is awesome for those quickies!

I posted the question because the natural gas ones are sometimes significantly cheaper, I work at an engineering shop so I can pretty much make any adaptors I would need and have a good mate that is a qualified plumber who can help me out.

Just got a quote from Weber to convert my SpiritE320 from natural to lpg
Kit is $ 127 but must be done by a licensed gasfitter who must fill in forms and give to Weber before they will sell the kit . Weber will do it for $248with their own technican.

Even though it's a lot more money, on top of the $127 for the kit and a lot of mucking around with paperwork, i reckon you'd be better to pay Weber to fit it, it'll have a warranty on the kit and if anything stuffs up, then Weber will come back out to sort it out...they are very good.
I reckon a plumber will charge well over $100 to do that job so in the end not much difference so get Weber tech to do it.
