Straight propane engines can be run at a higher compression ratio because it has a high octane rating.

It has information on different types of propane conversions, one modifies the existing carburetor, another uses an adapter plate with the original carb and the last uses a dedicated propane carb.
Al, the cost of propane varies quite abit, at least in TN. The cylinder exchange racks are too expensive. Refueling your tank at the local utility or hardware store costs about the same as gasoline. There is one boat and RV center here that is selling propane at a $1.99/gal.
I can understand the benefits of using propane on small engines. Especially ones that are not used for long periods of time.
I wonder if running a small engine without hardened valve seats on propane would cause premature wear on the seats more quickly than running the same engine on the gasohol we have now.
