Ok - tell me if I'm way off the wall here, but basically I was looking for fuel economy. I'm very close to upgrading to RV 275's and I was hoping that at the same time that I did this, I could build me a cheap, homeade propane kit and a homemade water/meth injection kit. From talkin to the old farmers that used to run propane/butane tractors/pickups, they claim that propane is VERY hard on valves. Talking to diesel guys, I've heard propane runs high EGT's easily which would be in turn hard on pistons and the turbo (my guesses) Now- if I put in a little water to counteract the disadvantages of the propane, maybe I could acheive better mpg's without harmful side effects. But with injectors and propane, I'd think that a little water to cool the burn would help. Regardless, I think that my comp box can overfuel for the air that I can give it and then add 275 injectors to that....
