Conversion of an air-cooled gasoline engine to propane fuel can result in an engine with lower exhaust emissions, longer life, and less maintenance. The role of the carburetion system in mixing, the development of a novel liquid withdrawal system, and the importance of engine temperature were vital to this successful conversion.
