If they're designed to lubricate from oil/fuel mix, then it won't work so well... but if they have oil sumps and lubrication separated from fueling system, that'll be more promising.

Running them on gaseous fuels such as LP or NG is generally a matter of establishing an apporpriate regulation, vaporization, and metering system. A small demand regulator would be the most challenging part. Getting performance will probably require adjustment to ignition timing.
