That wasn't for you. I think Tom didn't see you had 40 gallon tank and you were getting 25+ mpg

I think propane would be great if the system was very clean and concise like on a forklift we charged 3.00 gal lp here but also have to add road tax roughly .50 gallon on top of that. LP would keep the oil cleanr and has a 98 octane rating? LP is a way better fuel than natural gas just take a look at a home genset that makes 18000 watts on natural gas and 20000 on LP

Yeah Clunk within 1 minute of power outage my unit has started and turned the power over to the gen set and it will not give it back until the incoming line can produce at least 80% of my power needs with my business the battery backups can last that long on the computers easily and then I am self substainable as long as the gen runs and I can pump LP out of my dispenser up to 830 gallons

The big 250Kw Ballard fuel cells can operate on natural gas, they have a converter that strips H2 from natural gas.
Now that would be cool. Yer lights go out and the Ballard picks up the slack with always ready/no tanks to fill natural gas from the gas main.
Now if they'd just downsize that package.
