    I've been thinking of going to propane injection on my blazer. I think it would be cheaper than buying a EFI system. But where could I mount the tank? I don't want to put it inside because it stinks and....well...its flammable. Does anyone have any suggestions or is anyone running propane on their rigs? pros and cons please.

    Propane with gas engine or diesel?
    I am putting mine under, if you look down there there is plenty of room.
    Mine is for diesel though, it's like nitrous for gas.

    mine is gas, where at under? Mine is a full top blazer so it has the big supports under each side behind the rockers.

    Why do you want propane? For a Diesel, it's considered a "poor man's turbo" as it really boosts the power. But for gas engines, the energy to cost raio is less than that for gasoline due to therising costs of propane. So your truck would have less power wth equal amounts of fuel. If you want the "injection" aspect, go to swap meets and look for the older Holley pro-jections. They're around $350 in the NW. But the Q-jet really can be tuned in to perform on and off road. Next to the Motorcraft 2 barrel, it's the best carb for inclines due to float bowl design.

    a manifold tank will go where your existing fuel tank is
