just bought a propane truck, it sputters when on the highway...

hey guys, i recently bought this truck to just haul stuff around it, it runs on propane, it sarts and drives fine, but when you give it more than 1/2 throttle or take it past 50mph it starts sputtering. the prev. owner told me its some filter that needs to be changed... i've never dealt with propane do i dont even know where to start.... What should i check and replace?

follow the fuel line from the tank to fuel lock device

Click the image to open in full size.

remove screws (carefully sometime soft and stripe easily)
filter is white material
cost $8 buck in canada

takes about 10 minutes.

i ended up doing that, replaced the filter, the truck was ok for about a day, then started sputtering again... i ended up getting rid of it for more than i paid for it and didnt bother with trying to fix it
