    I think there's a huge market where I am for a lawn company running on greener or alternative fuels. Think I could sign up a lot of people taking care of their own yards if they thought I could do it "greener." And they'd probably be willing to pay a premium for said "greener" service.

    So is there anything else I can run regular gas mowers on? Was introduced to this stuff:

    But don't have any idea what it costs or if it's even locally available. Not willing to exchange all my equipment for diesels or whatever, but if I could run different fuel and advertise as such with my present equipment without going broke doing it I could maybe get a lot more customers. This is a liberal hippie town.

    Any suggestions?

    Propaine would be the easiest.

    Thanks, I was over complicating it. There's a bottle gas company locally who runs their own trucks on lp gas. I'll call and ask a couple questions.
