i just checked into converting one of my old trucks into propayne,its a old carbureted job, [ i will not own a new truck] but the kicker came from the propayne dealer, he told me that due to gov regs, the only way you can realize money saved is to fill it from a nurse tank at home,if you drive into the propayne dealer to fill up they are required to add road tax to the propayne since its used to power a truck, not heat a house, better check into that where you live

No reason you should not pay fuel tax on your propane fueled rig. It tears up the roads as much as any gasoline or diesel powered rig, so it is a fair tax.

We have run a couple of propane powered heavy pickups for many years.
Our state (ND) allows you to estimate (MPG VS miles per year) to come up with the gallons of LP used on road per year and pay the road tax on that amount. Bulk propane price plus road tax is still a bunch cheaper than $4 per gallon gasoline.
