Diesel to propane is a losing proposition:
One in a best case scenario, one engine built for diesel, one custom built for solely LP, the propane contains ~20% less energy per unit than diesel.

It also is contained in a pressurized state. All those dipshits wrecking into buses? Now kids will be sitting on little bombs needing only a small leak and source of ignition. Diesel, while it will burn, does not explode.

Propane engines, while burning much cleaner, require much higher levels of quality maintenance that comes with higher compression, and injection pressures. Whens the last time you saw a well-maintained bus? Longer oil intervals and associated costs are pretty minimal overall.

The LP price quoted in the article is the "right now" market price, coming out of a mild winter, in the heat of summer. These prices can triple under massively varying demand/supply conditions which happens seasonally. You can only contract one year in advance.

Bottom line: they will pay more now and over time to pat themselves on the back for being "woke".

^^^my apologies, I was looking up on two different tables. Propane has only 65% of BTUs as a gallon of diesel.
