24 MPG with propane injection!

I was watching a video on You tube and this guy claims 24 MPG from his 7.3 using a Superchips digital propane injection system. He starts talking about it around 2 min and starts talking MPG numbers around 5:15. Could this be possible? Is running propane on a daily driver worth it with these numbers?

I would bet running propane 24/7 would suck up that tank really fast.

Re: 24 MPG with propane injection!

The powerstroke help guy does have some good ideas and some good points to help a person when repairing your truck. However I quit paying attention to him once he said to you need to change your hpop oil.
