I use a small outboard with a internal tank...I can "slosh" the motor and take a look into the tank to see how much fuel that I have...would you have to carry one of those heavy as bag of bowling balls and just as handy tanks with you? or may be use those canisters that you use on your camp stove...just screw one on to the motor. I worked in a warehouse with a propane powered fork lift tools were needed to change the tank and of course they would walk off and I already can hear the sound of a adjustable wrench splashing into the drink...yes it was clean running but the electric fork lift was cleaner and quieter and when done with that we would just plug it in....
