  • Closed/pressurized fuel system
    • Virtually no fuel vapors, sometimes referred to as HCs (hydrocarbons) or VOCs (volatile organic compounds), are released into the atmosphere
      • Virtually all the propane fuel is burned in the engine during the normal combustion process
      • Gasoline fueled units emit fuel vapors into the atmosphere during operation and while setting idle or being stored
  • In the unlikely event of a fuel spill, propane will not contaminate the soil or groundwater
  • Fuel stability … no deterioration or breakdown of fuel over time
  • Engine Service Considerations
    • Propane is cleaner burning and has fewer combustion by-products as compared to gasoline
    • Engine oil will contain less contaminates for same hours of operation
    • Opportunity exists to extend oil change intervals but is not yet officially approved by engine manufacturers
    • Extended engine life is anticipated
