got it...

the savings on fuel cost is nice. im not too concerned on that as much as the propane octane was always better than gasoline..

you mentioned this not needing a Vapor conversion/mixer.. anything else you wanna send me or share on the set up?

list of what we get vs what else we need to buy... blah blah blah ... all the usual stuff.

Terry,

this all sounds great...

now for dumb questions...

20 or 40lb standard lay down forktruck bottles are good for this set up right? pressure.. & so on?

still just standard fill up from my local propane vendor?

wanna send me a price on that set up?

ok.. now we are getting somewhere. this set up will require that tank style...

for those of us who arent experts in this field..

is this still the same standard fill from the local propane vendor? just the different tank for the pick up of vapor instead?

the old set up i mentioned to you required the mixer but ran regular fork truck tanks.. whats the advantage to this way? just dropping the mixer cost out?

just wanted to thank Terry for all the conversation & help in trying to get this set up for my mower/toy...

after lots of conversations with Terry & ALex it turns out my toy just has too much time/wear on it for this conversion right now...

but i'll be looking for it if i ever redo the motor or replace it.. :-)

Sorry Terry still waiting to get the two mowers. Being in Belize its hard to get things quickly always have hang ups and snags. I would like a quote on a system for my hustler z its a 2005 engine is being rebuilt as I write this its a 27 hp kohler engine the new pistons are .08 larger than the originals. Let me know then I 'll get the other info to you as soon as I get other two. Thanks.

I was perusing the Scag website and came across their dual fuel ZTR. I would love to see one up close. That must be some serious engineering to make it all work. That would be the best of both worlds for the guys concerned about having to carry extra tanks.
