Does anybody have Propane on their 6.0?

I was looking at the Superchips propane injection system on Elite's site and I have a few questions.

On my truck this would be purely for mileage gains, so what kind of range of extra mpgs are people seeing? (Is it really worth the price?)

Is propane bad for your engine? It seems to me if it wasn't, everybody would do it.

What other mods would be needed to make it function properly?

I was looking into propane, but everyone has told me to stay away, its not good for the motor at all, nitrous is actually much safer, but not really meant for mileage gains.

Methanol is windshied washer fluid, It is alot cheaper to use distilled water. It does work good to control your egt's. I have always been told not to use it for extra power only use it when your egt's are out of hand. Duno?

i have a snow stage 3. my controller is set to boost only. It sprays when i see 20 pounds. like i said its a ton of fun on the street and not bad at the track. I get meth at the a local speed shop and you can also get it at the track. I dont use windshield washer fluid.
