    I'd be interested in hearing some comments also, though I don't know of anybody in the club running it.

    I will say that if your main concern is mileage than it's probably not worth it. Propone contains less energy (BTU's) then gas per unit of measure (gallons for example), so with all other things equal it requires more propone to do the same work as gas and thus the mileage will decrease some. Generally the reason people run propane is because of the off-road performance on grades or off-camber.

    well, stock 258 carbs run like crap so odds are it will still be an improvement. blus its way more effeciant than a carb. and its cheaper.
