Question Propane what size tank?

I was curious about propane injection since reading it in a magazine, what size tank would be sufficient to see good numbers from, will one off a bbq be to small? I want to find something that will work with a toolbox in my bed. Last is it safe? Oh ya its for a 02 Ram. Sorry.

I have a 10 gal tank on mine it lasts about 2 fillups.

BBQ tanks are to small and unable to flow enough propane. A pair of BBQ tanks flowing in parallel will work

Thanks Phydeaux88 I think a 10 gallon tank will be suffice for now, know any good toolbox manufacturers or did you have to make a custom one up? All I can find is toolboxes for extra gas tanks.

My tank is mounted inboard the frame on the passenger side. I had a skid plate made for it to protect against puncture.

What kind of injection system are you looking at?

I was looking at the MSD ignition digital propane injection system, i'll probably just fab up a some mounts in my toolbox I don't really want to put under the truck, just the way I drive I don't trust it.

I would be carefull putting it in a toolbox . If a leak was to occur , the fumes would accumilate in the tool box ....huge fire danger .

Thats a good point on how flammable it is I guess i'll have too look in a different place to mount it probably inboard on the passenger side or something. Thanks guys.

Check into the Powershot 2000
Its a vapor phase system. Much safer than liquid phase
