    Precisely! Propane burns at lower BTU's than gasoline, or even diesel for that matter. Its also much more costly than gas when expressed in MPG's. Plus with gas, the manufacturer has the luxury of designing the gas tank to fit the ski as opposed to propane the ski must be designed to fit around the cylinder. The only reason its popular with forklifts is because they are mainly run indoors where low emissions are paramount and also because the tanks are carried on the outside of the lift reducing the possibility of an leak related explosion

    Propane powered ski ? If anyone has done it i'm sure they said it was a waste of time and a waste of money. no engine small enough to fit in a ski will be powerful enough to move effectively.

    Re: Propane powered ski ?

    Many countries in south America use Propane and gasoline in the cars. A propane tank in the trunk and a gas tank. With a selector valve under the dash. It is a matter of time before
    this becomes common place. If you don't think it's coming to the world of jetski's and water craft take a look at this web site and read about it for yourself.

    go to : www.deckjetwatercraft.com

    There is a section that states they are working on a propane 4 stroke power plant for use
    in this type watercraft....

    check it out if your in doubt.

    no one is saying it cant be done we are just saying its not very beneficial in a pwc. rock buggies have been doin it for years. the mail trucks run off it and you can have your car or truck converted for a couple grand.

    Re: Propane powered ski ?

    Propane carburators have been in use for years and years. But they are just carbs !
    Now nearly everything is fuel injection. Not the same playing field. I don't know what
    Method these cars in south america use but I bet it's fuel injection with some metering valve
    on the throttle body for the LPG.... no mods to the motor are required. Actually A friend at work
    just came back from SA and said that he rented a car down there and sure enough it was GAS / LPG . He said by driving it you could not tell one bit of difference in the performance.
