Re: propane???? anybody runnin it?

lol well i should ran the math, to get any gain in total mpg and spent on fuel i would have to get 4mpg gain and that would just cover the propane and not the system lol

Re: propane???? anybody runnin it?

Hey Cantrellc123 i really couldn't understand too much of you data. It seemed like it wasn't worth it. Am i right? Jake how did you calculate the 4mpg difference? I guess it depends at what price you can get propane and #2
