    I may be wrong but I would think you could, it would be a pain in the ass though as you'd have to add a tank, pump(s) and full fuel lines, rails, pressure regulators etc on the fuel delivery end of things.

    I also don't know a heck of a lot about propane engine design, but propane itself is somewhere in the range of 110 octane, and I believe propane engines run high compression (10+:1) so you might have to reduce the compression to get the engine to run properly without pinging.

    I would just look for a diesel one if I were you....

    Propane engines are normal engines. My old jimmy had a conversion done to it, most people will keep the fuel tank and just add a propane bottle, which the bus probably has enough room to do so. You would need a new carb. But find a diesel as you will have nowhere near the power you would want.

    Or possibly...





    On track though, yes you can convert a GAS engine to propane, you can't however turn a DIESEL into propane, and most buses are diesel. There are kits for propane injection into a diesel system though, which gives you better mileage.

    the place out on CHB is first students NE lot... You wont buy any there - believe they go to Michner allen to be sold. But there is a junkyardish storage looking place with a few kicking around the back 40 facing stoney

    Most of the first student etc - are dual fuel propane conversions - straight gas equipment is already there, just flush and go
