The problems you're experiencing are (unfortunately) very common for those attempting conversion on their own. I deal with this almost daily. There are entirely too many companies using propane successfully to discount it's effectiveness in not only saving money, but helping the environment and reducing our dependence on foreign oil.

Ed, you live in Texas where, with all the incentives, you could have your conversions done without charge. I'd be happy to send you the info.

I'm not sure why you are lugging tanks around. Typically we supply a locking rack and tanks to exchange.

Ed, you're working entirely too hard! ;-)
I don't think we have any program for old units. You know with this gas prices continuing to drop I might have to convert them back. The one that I am having trouble starting(without me sucking) now runs on all kind of slopes and it runs fine on startup on cold days. I went 2000 hrs and couldn't get those problems fixed. So I am a happy camper. I cut all today the grass
and WEEDs are still growing.
