Thats very true Howard. The tank would have to be very big. And that tank is going to be very heavy. Not good for an AATV. If I remember right propane has about 1/3 less BTU's than gas. About a 1/3 bigger with the same range.

There was two guys around here with propane setups on their drag cars. They would always get smoked because the propane had low BTU's and just did not make the power.

Around where I live, the propane is just as expensive or more at some times of the year than gas, even though is has a 1/3 less BTU's. All those tanks you saw in the back of pickups in the 70's, they are all gone now!!!!

O, and thanks for the reminder, I have to go fill up my 25 gallon tank for $45 bucks..........gggggrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!!!!!!!
