Converting irrigation systems to LP, is it financially feasible?

856 Views 5 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  Dad
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.

It's 3,000 gallons per well and they get filled up several times throughout the summer. The tanks are free with a contract through the CO-OP. If I contract enough propane, I can get it for $1.85. What does a kit cost to convert it? With it properly installed, is there a chance it could do damage to the motor?
