Propane generators will become popular.

AFAIK, the bill makes no distinction between different small engine fuels.

If they "pollute" at all, they're going under the axe.

Link to actual bill here.

There is already multible threads on this.

The ban against small generators IS NOT going into effect until the technology makes zero emmission generators feasible. The law is about reducing "low hanging fruit" IC engine small equipment use such as personal use leaf blowers and lawn mowers, and encouraging new technology for the rest. No equipment will be banned until the feasibility and technology is sufficient for the usage.

Is it a purchase ban or a use ban?

It sounds like a ban on sales of new engines, not a ban on using existing engines.
This will affect the entire country as manufacturers like to sell their item in all 50, but is CA the hot bed for lawn care? Seems like the Eastern half grows more grass and fall leaves than dry dusty dirty CA...
I did not see anything about RV generators, but they would fall under the small engine category. 4 stroke generators do not pollute like 2 stroke lawn motors or cheapo construction generators also.
I would argue that RV generators are not "off road" motors as they are on a street legal vehicle and serve that vehicle. "off road" in this case means not used on a State road, and not licensed for road use.
