You just have to custom build then tune it. I have a 1 ton chevy with a turbo that runs on propane. Welded up all the piping myself. 545hp and 785ft/lb will sure spin the 38s.

I would like to run my 2 cycle on propane but haven't decided if it is possible to inject or mix oil properly with propane.

Yep, I here that a lot... But just because you're not havin' problems (yet) doesn't mean you're not damaging those engines. Your turn is a comin', mark my words.

Two-Cycle engines (like your weed eater and Harley Golf Cart) have nasty problem with Ethanol blendeds. Two-Cycle engines need oil added to the fuel, which bonds to the engines metal surfaces and provides barrier lubrication to the parts requiring lubrication. When Ethanol is added to the gasoline, it displaces the oil (ethanol is an effective solvent, cleans oil and grease right up) and forms a primary bond with the metal surfaces. This bond provides virtually no lubrication and can result in significantly increased wear, sticking piston rings (hmmmmm, could that be my problem?) and even catastrophic failure in a very short amount of time.

Do yourself a favor and research it... don't read what the Government, the EPA, the Ethanol Board, the Renewable Fuels Association and the Tree Huggers say... do some real research.

Here is a couple links to get you started...

I am not disagreeing all I am saying is we have a lawn boy lawn mower that has never had more than a carb rebuild. My dad got it when I was 5, I am 35. It has alway had E10. We still use it to mow every week. Hell it has been through 4 sets of wheels. What about all the Banhees on Methonal? My weed eat and chain saw do usually get plain 87 and my 250r get sunoco standard (110).

Don't confuse Methanol with Ethanol... both have advantages and disadvantages over the other. Methanol reacts completely different with H2O... the water removing fuel additive "HEET" is made with Methanol. Most any engine running high percentages of Methanol are either specifically modified or designed and engineered for that fuel... which is not the same thing as running Ethanol blends in engines designed and engineered for gasoline, especially small four-cycle and any two-cycle engines.

I understand. I know it isn't good on them but I think alot of the wear and tear my stuff gets is from me more than the fuel I use. I am willing to bet the E10 is the least of the problems of my small engines with the dusty conditions they work in.
