I have one of those...how does it work. I'll be up around 11:1+ compression so dual fuel isn't an option but my son's bronco may be one!

thanks

I've got an '83 F250 with a 460 in it. I'm very interested in a similar combo for my truck... can you tell us more about your propane conversion, such as where you had it done, approx. cost, has it been trouble-free, what's the power and mileage like, and any other comments you'd like to add?

Many thanks, in advance!
