Its just a propane conversion from a company like Impco, etc. Forklifts and industrial equipment have been running propane for years without problems. Works great on gassers but it is tough finding fuel stations especially late at night... RT

We had a mechanic once that wasn't too in favour of the propane conversions. He said the fuel burns hotter than it's 'supposed' to, and it shortens the engine life.

Where and how would you inject the propane?

Surely not into the combustion chamber? Into the intake manifold?

I'd like to buy it and drive it back, but I wonder how many times I'd need to stop in at WalMart to get another gas grill propane container.........
