Well, yes and no. Would you grill your steak with such an apparatus? Probably not. Propane kits are equipped with a regulator, check valves, vaporizer, as well as a control module to vary the flow to the engine. Unregulated propane pulled into the intake can result in a runaway situation (engine can't be shut off due to combustible intake mixture, and accelerates uncontrollably, usually resulting in destruction to the engine and it's surroundings.)
