Default Re: Propane conversion

Propane has a octane rating in the 90's and is extremely clean burning (no carbon), as a rule of thumb propane expands 400 times it's volume and weighs 4.11 lbs per gallon, the hard part is getting a metering device/carb that will correctly meter the gas to air ratio for engine, on a car/truck there quite complicated. One could use it as a booster, give the engine a shot when you really want to move,,,kinda like nitrous.
