There are absolutely generators that run on propane and they are very popular right now. They are sold in all sizes. A small portable type generator could power your furnace easily. They are really only a big fan and burner and use very little electricity. Depending on what else you would like to power you can increase the size of the generator. You will want to have an electrician install a transfer switch and wire it to your house. Also you will want to decide if you want a pull start generator or spend the money on a battery powered starting system
i don't understand you say it uses little electricity. but if i am experiacing a power outage
i will have no electricity. or do you mean it uses litttle electricty when it standby before the storm comes.
i gave you a small tip and they said "thank you foer rating your expert" but i really did'nt
rate you. they have done this many times before.

feet and 750sq ft basementhe said he could put in a transfer switch. but i was afraid to ask howmuch this would coast me because i was having other major work to do and would'nt contimplate it til may of 2013.
