LPG may have a higher flame temp, but it produces less energy that
gas when a vehicle is converted. I had a '73 Dodge truck with a 318 C.I.D.
engine that was set up as a dual fuel vehicle. LPG cost was much lower, but
the energy and mileage was less as well. There was a noticeable difference in
acceleration between the two, plus a gallon of LPG did not last quite as many
miles. But, as I recall, the LPG was cheap enough at the time that it was
cost effective to use.
