I hear the lines about propane motors outlasting the gas motors a lot, but in my line of work, I find burned valves and other expensive problems occuring at a much higher rate. We converted our tow truck back to gas due to the much lower cost of keeping it on the road. YMMV

too bad there's not a way to just press a key and delete these posts by the likes of smile 468. I can think of a real good use for one of his clubs...

Re: Propane fueled engines

heh spam eh?

back to the propane thing (which i know is 4 years old lol) biggest problem is filling.

best solution is to have a dual fuel setup. run the gas and propane. just run propane till you run out and switch back to gas

Re: Propane fueled engines

Hey, youse guys! It's Sunday, so I'm gonn'a give one of my occational sermons:

Once upon a time, a lady backed her automobile out of the garage to take a trip, but noticed that the gasoline tank was nearly empty. She chewed on this problem for a minute, and came up with the key word "gas". So she jerry-rigged some sort of hose from the Natural Gas plumbing in her house, to the Gasoline tank in the automobile. This enabled her to take a trip all right -- just not the kind she had planned.

This is but one example of why I prefer to spell out "gasoline" and other words that might be misunderstood. "Gas" is one of the worst -- there must be ten different kinds of "gas" in American English. (Tooooooot. Pardon me.)

All right, sermon over. Cookies and ice cream in the annex!
