Most guys don't really run propane because the benefits aren't really worth it. Trying to gain mileage out of it, works to a small extent, but then you have to pay to refill the propane, so there isn't much gain there, and given the cost of a kit, it will take a long time to break even if you ever actually do.

If you are trying to get some extra power out of it, and not just using it to gain a more complete burn of your diesel, you encounter high cylinder pressures and put your headgasket at risk, especially if you are running advanced timing and/or higher boost levels.

I'm not going to test it out on this truck. But if I end up selling this and getting some older crappier diesel that isn't worth much I'll see if it knocks down fuel costs at all. Sean you got your PSD for sale?

Nope, but my brother is probably going to be selling his soon. Its kinda beat, but its pretty much stock, only mods are a stack and a John Woods tranny that has about 10k on it now. Not sure what he's going to ask. He wants a dodge though. However, it currently has a really bad knock and no power, so we have to tear into the engine to see whats wrong.

Well I actually think I found a 1 Ton 6.9. A Guy will pay what's left of my loan, plus a crappy 6.9 van chassis. That'll be a good test truck. Right now I like my truck too much so I don't got the balls to go through with the deal yet.

I've heard all kind of weird stories with propane injection...

As for me I'm going to stay to steady diet of #2 Diesel and 2 Cycle Oil... My truck is a bit ULSD intollerant...

My truck doesn't need drugs to get high MPG numbers...
