People have largely given up on propane for two reasons.

1. It costs too much. If you are paying over $2.50/gal for propane, No.2 is cheaper in terms of $/MMBTU.

2. If you run propane you cannot have a tune with any injection advance without risking bending a rod.

If you can buy the LPG at the right price then its worth it. I know right now Im buying LP for $2 and diesel for $4. I currently dont have LP on the Ex but my bronco ii and 460 both run on it. By the end of the year the Ex will have it also.

Dont get caught up on ALL the negative talk about it either. Most people have a bad taste in their mouth about it becasue they had trouble. The key is not to run to much, because thats when you have trouble. For a purly economy tune your usage should be no higher than 20% LP to diesel. Also like Dave said dont be running on the HOT tune with it since LP does speed up the flame front.
