Hate to answer my own question but it arrived and it's pretty white and it fits just fine on my 1240 Lowe. Just got oil today and may be able to get ti wet and broke in soon. I can't be the first person to buy one of these things...but maybe there just aren't that many propane users on this site...we'll see how I like it.

I'm not sure I've ever seen a propane powered outboard out on the lake. I'm not even sure if I would recognize one. I hope you will come back and share your experience with the Tohatsu.

Winter snuck or is that sneaked up on me and I did not get the jon boat and propane engine out on the water. The water is still soft but the air is too darn cold for me...I'll check back in April or May and report performance and ease of operation. I did get the oil in it and hooked up 11 gallon propane tank...2 pulls later and it was running for a few seconds and smelled just like my propane powered generator.

Merry Christmas and a Happy and Healthy New Year to all!!

I'm curious as to how well you think it works out for you, including fuel consumption.

Have safe holidays, and best wishes.
