That pretty much verifies the theory with the poly cans.  Looks like
CARB has some new regs and the standard 4 tab cap jerry cans are no
longer available.  I'll have to keep searching.

I'm looking for a real breakdown of diesel vs. propane, in the
15-25KW range. Obviously, [for a given fuel cost] there will be
some # of hours, below which propane wins and above that, diesel does.

I need to be able to quantify that. Has anyone seen a case study?

  Well, on that and a different subject, I looked at Miller welders today.
 The Bobcat 250 is $,474 + $44tx = $,718  9500 watts continuous,
11,000 peak.  Only $00 more than the Honda and an extra 3500 watt
  Disadvantages , it is louder, uses more fuel, slightly more costly (unless
I mail order out of state, no taxes)
Advantages, more capacity, It's a welder, should hold value, can be sold as
a little used welder.

   Any opinions?

It depends on lots of things.  First, how often do you need a portable welder?
If the answer is "never" or even "rarely" then why pay more?  Second; what about
the engine?  For example: is it name brand or Chinese?  What kind of reputation
does that engine have in the industry?

Regardless, you will likely need to search beyond this group for reviews on that
