Well they tend to be multi fuel, take to a job site run on gasoline. Put oputside your home, connect natural gas or propane hose to quick disconnect that at other times might be used for gas grill.
Natural gas burns clean, doesnt gum up when unused either. Its really simple to conver even a small gasoline engine to natural gas. I have a friend who has done that but he runs his car and jeep on CNG at 1500 PSI.

One thing to think about is fuel storage - if it's a gas powered generator, you need to run the carb and fuel lines dry , put stabilizer in the gas, and even then you should occasionally swap out the gas.
Since most people don't do this, seldom-run gas generators are unlikely to start reliably for more than a year or two.
If you really need reliable intermittent generator power, look at nat gas or propane powered units.
