Propane vs Gasoline

Go to MetroLawn. They have a complete program for your mower converstions. I am converting 2 zero turns, 1 stand up and 1 rider on 7/19/11.
It is about 25% fuel savings, plus less wear and tear on your engines, giving you a bigger Return on your investment!

Grass man Have you done it and if so how is it working for you. I have a propane mower that came as propane, but i wanted to know how the gas to propane conversions worked.? Please give us your results the only thing stopping me from getting a superz is that they dont make it stock with propane. Thankyou.

12 of the major lawn mower mfg offer propane versions to date. Kawasaki warrents the engine for certain after market conversions as their engine are mfg with harden stelite components. This covers about 70% of the commercial mower market.

delanceyburnett if you go to the web site www.gogreenmetrolawn.com there you will find a fuel calculator that you can use to calculate your savings between propane and gasoline.
