I believe Tohstsu did, and the baby Merc’s are of course Tohatsu’s.
Having said that, I’d expect a better product from Tohatsu than the Lehr was.

The Lehr was sooo bad that I fear it's memory will contaminate that market for awhile. There is no reason that a good propane engine cannot be built, but I'd approach with caution and maybe avoid the first generation.
