Just do a search on this site on "propane"! Most of these things have been discussed over and over again......Check my signature-I'm a big propane fan. Great punch and mileage and keeps things clean...):h

Do you ever drive a car? Secured properly, a tank of propane is safer than a tank of gasoline.....:eek:

There are brackets to mount it under your bed.

Propane useage is very more dangerous than most mods... I won't use it due to malfunctions that can occur. Messing with fuel and timing in those ways just aren't my thing!

Electronics adjust or "mess" with fuel and timing. ;) Propane simply accelerates the burn of the diesel fuel, thus squeezing power and mileage out of fuel that is not normally burned. The powe/mileage does not come from the propane but the effect it has on the diesel fuel.
Used properly it is very safe and effective. It is not for everyone obviously..........;)

My Powershot 2000 compliments the TTS 80, 120, and Extreme very nicely.:ro)

You can mount a forklift tank where the spare tire goes if you want an economical underbed tank. I think you can probably get two tanks under there, that would hold 16 gal. Read this thread to find out about my system. http://dieselplace.com/forum/showthread.php?t=43102

The Extreme is one of the programs on my TTS ECM, it has nothing to do with the Powershot. If you have a Powershot from ATS i'm sure it has the same spring and diaphram as the Powershot I have. :)

The only problem I have with propane is that I have a 10 gallon tank and I run out quickly. :) So I only turn it on when I am playing or towing. I adjust the amount of propane accordingly.
