For lpg the tractor I have and use 930 Case, the lpg is about the same cost wise to operate compared to diesel. They burn about twice as much but the price is half so roughly it comes out about the same. Biggest advantage I think is the fact that the engines are MUCH cheaper and simpler to repair compared a diesel, and they run a long time before major work is needed usually. I was told that early on they used LP heavily here in Okla due to it being so cheap. Today many think that a big lpg tractor is not efficient, I disagree.

Yes the oil stays very clean on them. Usually non detergent oil is used in lp and natural gas engines. I believe they typically use harder valves in them. From what I have seen they are less prone to burn oil also and I don"t know why. They do tend to run for a long time. lp natural gas power is a Very good thing overall I think.
