More suitable

I think converting a gas engine to Lpg would make more sense, but there aren't that many gas engines (marine) out there. Deisels are high compression not requireing spark for ignition. They are built heavier to withstand compression loads. A lot of forktrucks use propane engines, I'm sure if there was a demand propane engines would be availeble for boats.
