Propane might be OK for a road vehicle, but I wouldn't consider it for anything off-road. But that's just me...

Besides in a 2 stroke all your lubrication comes from oil mixed with the fuel. I don't think you're going to find 2 stroke propane oil.
Some 2 stroke engines have their own oil supply, actually. I'll find one when I get back online to show you, but not all 2 strokes actually have mixed oil and fuel.

(I'm thinking that the ones that don't need to be mixed run on diesel fuel, though... not sure.)
