Propane is much cleaner than gasoline and the carburetion system is also simpler. No choke or accelerator pump required like a gasoline carburetor. Propane is 110 octane and is ideal for engines with a compression ratio of 10.5-to-one like the sprint overhead cam engine. I made several engine modifications to optimize for propane. Of course I can still run on gasoline if I want but the engine really wants 100 octane or better.
