RE: Lehr Propane Outboard Motor
Here is a review of the lehr outboard 5hp and it is a mixed bag, people are having difficulty with the cowling and so suspect this is a problem. If I were to buy one, I would have a strong warrenty and buy like in spring when you will use the motor alot and if it breaks it will be under warrenty. http://www.westmarine.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/ProductDisplay?productId=1098357&catalogId=10001&langId=-1&storeId=11151&storeNum=50596&subdeptNum=50616&classNum=61508#showReviews

I am concerned about so many negative reviews. It may be by now they have worked out the kinks. Finding someone that owns the lehr instead of reading reviews would be my preference, of course you can phone or email with a "phony" problem to guage customer service, around the puget sound West Marine Stores are a distributer. I may end up buying one, but they will have to prove to me that they are reliable and that if there is a problem they will respond

But on the subject of propane, converted my seasonally used hunting jeep with parts off ebay. Best thing ever done! No stale gas, no carb rebuilds from sitting up, and no rust in tanks issues on seldom used vehicle. Sealed system! Ran it off fork lift tanks. Just wish I could do a motorcycle that easy!Mercer

do a web search for them, lots of complaints about them. I want to love them, but they may have improved in recent years, but do your research. I likely will convert another engine to propane.
