Engines run extremely well on propane, but propane has less BTU's per gallon. You will lose mileage and power. In the late 70's and the 80's I ran all my vehicles on propane. You will need to carry a large propane tank which may be difficult to locate on your truck other than in the bed. I wouldn't consider using propane on a fuel injected vehicle because of the cost of conversion. Propane isn't cheaper than gas or diesel anymore either.
