Hey everyone!

I知 excited because this is my first thread ever. But I have a question that I couldn稚 find in the thread search. Or maybe I知 not searching correctly because I知 new to this platform 😅

Okay so I have a 1995 GMC BlueBird School bus that I plan on putting through an entire skoolie rebuild. Now here is my question there is a switch that changes the engine from Gasoline to Propane in the engine! Two tanks pretty crazy and out of my realm. And because I am a complete novice at this realm of skoolies here was my question.

What are the chances that I can send the propane tank from the engine to the inside of the bus so when I begin building my skoolie I have a way to have propane lines running to a stove, and a shower for hot water.

OR

Should I leave as is and would it be better to have a back up tank in the situation that I run out of gasoline fuel then switch to propane.

I need some help from the experts!!

Leave as is. Not worth the trouble to change things around and quite often deleting undesired equipment yields undesirable results. Seeing as this one is a gasoline / LP model, I might be interested in it if you'd rather do something else. I have asthma and being around a diesel is not a good idea for me.

On LPG engines the hose feeds from the liquid valve. DO NOT use it for any appliances! ONLY USE vapor valves through a 2 stage regulator. If you don't understand something on LPG please ask. It is very unforgiving.

That said LPG can be safe. Just respect it.
