Converting irrigation systems to LP, is it financially feasible?

We've got several irrigation motors that are 4bt, 4bta, and 6bt. We were wondering how much, if any, money we would save by blending propane into them? Also what does it takes to convert them? With diesel as high as it is, it costs a fortune to fill each of them up 3,000 gallons at a time. These motors are bone stock and run all day long at the same rpm.

i have converted several to natural gas off the top of my head i think the ignition point of propane is two low to work but propane injection will greatly reduce your fuel use it helps combustion big time and off the shelf kits are available from ats and a dozen others
