I saw another post that a guy said he saved 6.7 cents per mile running propane, incl the cost of pane. A powershot2000 kit costs 700 bucks so it would take 10500 miles at that savings to pay off a kit. Hell one oil change and start saving $, i might just break down and buy a kit to try.
I just went and filled the 425hp truck up, it averaged 4.33 mpg
. fock me running, It costs $1 per mile to keep fuel in the damn truck.
The cost of the propane is the biggest intangable. That 6.7 cents per mile can change quickly depending on propane cost. That savings per mile was under load pulling a 5th wheel. When driving with no load the savings are slim at best with My 7.3. In My opinion the carnage stories that you read about propane were most likely done by someone pushing way to much propane into their engine. Always remember EVERYTHING in moderation. With a bigger truck and different engine it could be much better or maybe not, but @ 4.3 MPG
it would be worth investigating. I had the powershot 2000 at first but was dissapointed because the adjustments were slim,I think now that there is more adjustments to be had with the powershot system. In My opinion I think adjustability is very important when trying to achieve the lowest cents per mile when considering using propane. PM ME, I still have My powershot system 250.00 will get it all, no tank
