    Hey guys I am thinking of converting all my equipment I use for my lawn and landscaping as well as I am thinking of buying a C6500 dump truck that is propane. Do any of you guys run propane trucks? If so is any of them a 6500 with the Vortec 8.1L? I know that the local propane companies trucks are all these as well as a lot of the schwanns trucks. I am not concerned about the reliability just wonder how long they run on a tank of fuel as this truck will plow snow in the winter time.

    Wonder what happens first time you have a DOT inspection? I mean form the point of view that propane doesn't have road tax added to the price. Is it the same issue/fine as running dyed fuel? I dunno, just saying, you're right though Schwan's trucks & propane delivery trucks run propane and get away with it.
