    Does anyone have experience using propane as a fuel for model engines. Can you use a gasoline carburetor? Is a pressure regulator required ?

    I like a lot of builders use propane. I like it because my shop is closed and the exhaust causes problems. Propane still has carbon monoxide issues.
    You need a demand regulator. Plans are in the tips section.
    A gas carburetor may work but I normally increase the needle orifice diameter 20%.
    Remember there is no lube in propane so valve guides need oil..
