    Does yours allow the choke to be used for gasoline starts if needed?

    LP is typically cheaper when in bulk. I get stopping on LP as it'll flush the engine of ethanol, etc. but
    1) why start with it?
    2) why not run it with LP?

    It starts much easier on LP. Running on LP doesn't produce the same power as gas so while gallon for gallon LP is cheaper it takes more to produce the same output.
    LP is much cleaner burning and stores better than gas also. So basically power output and ease of replacement during storm events are the main reason I use gas as my primary fuel. Gas is hard to find after a storm but LP is pure unobtainium.

    Didnt think about energy content affecting power output. LP is not as dense so it wouldnt create the same power. Thanks.

    i'm struggling to find your post about fuel storage plans. I didnt see it in this thread nor am i finding it when searching the site. Can you post a link? Until then i'll be searching.

    I hear that propane engines run dry unlike wetter gasoline so you need oil thats got slicking agents . Valvoline produces an engine oil approved for use in a gasoline, diesel and CNG/LNG engine. It's called Premium Blue One Solution 9200. It comes in 15w-40 and 10w-30. Cummins approved and recommended.

    Just so you know, I looked too and couldn't find that post. I'm not sure if it just never got posted, or if he decided to delete it for a reason.
