Nothing new about propane guys. When I was a wee lad, the neibor ran a few 1940's Allis Chalmers tractors, ala WC and WD45, on LP gas. In the late 80's and 90's my dad was a partner in a Propane company, He ran Chevy V8's on LP. What was worth noting back then was how CLEAN they ran. These trucks died of cancer, but the 350 SBC's were still running.... kinda strong. Remember, you lose a fair amount of powe on LP alone.
In addition, before you get all fired up on LP or CNG, remember you need to tote around a heavy, cumbersome tank. They tended (way back then) to be a little troublesome in cold weather, and power and mileage suffers.
Also, try to get filled up at 3am on the road needing LPG or CNG. Its a good idea, but its just a little impractical currently.
