Keep in mind, there are some very important considerations to review when modifying the engine's carburetor system. For example, an engine running on alternate fuels (propane, natural gas, etc.) can lose anywhere from 5 to 20% in horsepower.

Also, engines running on these fuels tend to run hotter, which can adversely affect the life of an engine. If you use alternate fuels, there are some warranty implications involved. For additional information, please visit our Warranty Policy page, specifically bullet point #11. You may also view a copy of your warranty statement within your engine Operator's Manual.
