    Thumbs up Welcome to GTT!

    According to Tractor Data, it only came in gasoline. However, Tractor Data hasn't always had the most correct information. Can you post a picture or two of the engine?

    IF your machine looks similar to these pics, and it's a Kawasaki V-twin 18hp, then yep .......it's gas.

    I don’t know about that..... had a parts guy try to sell me spark plugs for my 5.9 Cummins.





    I suspect his computer showed him plugs for the 5.9 gas V8.
