ok, so my 79 4x4 runs on propane and i dont have a big tank (i just use bbq tanks, dont last long enough) so i was looking for a bigger tank... i found a guy who has 2 full natural gas tanks (from a saskpower truck) so im wondering if the truck will run on natural gas as is? or do i have to change anything over?
right now the truck cant be switched to gas, there is no carb on it.. just the throttle body, only the lines for the propane, one gas tank has been removed, the other isnt hooked up or anything ( and stupid me put gas in it haha )
soooo... anyone know if i could run natural gas? i know nothing lol
I don't think so you need larger orifices for natural gas. But I have been wrong before and I will be wrong again.

I don`t know if the orifices are larger or smaller but I was told that they are different for a furnace in some way.
Where`s all our plumbers and heating experts?
Another thing about natural gas is that I`ve heard it takes a long time, like over night, to refuel a vehicle. I`m not real sure if that`s still true or if if the refueling time have improved.....
I too have 2 propane tanks that have been laying on the ground at my place. I was just going to put them with scrape metal. They came of a chevy propane tow truck. I don't need them here.
They would probally need to be cleaned and recertified.
