    With the GOSM's? Is nat gas not a good alternative? I think I read somewhere that it does not burn as clean or something. I am rifling through LP tanks, need to either get a big one, or try a Nat Gas conversion.
  2. Natural Gas has less than half the BTU content of LPG (propane)

    You'll need a larger Dia. orifice to use Natural gas as a fuel.

    The Area of the hole (in the orifice) should a little more than double.

    That does not mean the Dia. or Radius is doubled. The Area is doubled. Area = 3.14 X Radius squared

    Anyhow, Natural Gas or Propane in most cases can be interchanged.

    I've converted lots and lots of things from one to the other. :)

    Happy Converting!!
