Any body ran propane on 6.4 motor? What is the risk, pro, and cons of it? What system to use? Have an opportunity to put a system on very cheap and want some advice and learn about it. I have 2008 F-350 dually running all the spartan stuff. Thanks
One of the biggest pluses to propane as an additive or fuel supplement is the fact it helps the truck burn more of the fuel in the cylinders. Now in the days of the HEUI it help more cause the system doesn't generate the extreme pressures or multiple injection events of a Common Rail. Basically the common rail engine can burn the fuel that is in the combustion chamber more completely than an older engine. Therefore propane stops becoming an catalyst and starts become a second fuel that IMHO adds unnecessary complication and possible issues w/ not enough ROI on a newer engine.
Maybe on an older truck...but not a CR.
