    I was told that there is enough natural gas under Texas to run our country for two hundread years. We pay to much for everything because our government wants to run the world instead of our country.It's like an upsidedown pyramid. Without real reform,it will fall. Bobby

    Just got off the phone with my LP supplier, he said typically Summer LP prices fall to about 1/2 that in Winter. In my area that would be about .54 cent @ gallon. The cost to convert a 25 HP Kohler is $230 for the parts plus the cost of a tank. A Forklift tank is 12&quot; by 36&quot; approx (8 Gallons). The cost is approx $100.<br>

    I forgot to mention that the conversion would allow you to run either LP or Gas with the positioning of a switch. The cost to convert a Ford 460 with Carb would be approx $561 for parts less the LP Tank.
