Depends entirely on the build, c.r., cam specs, etc., give up more information.

Petrol? Where are you, Europe?
The Ford 351W engine was designed for American gasoline. It can be converted to run on compressed natural gas, or liquified propane gas. LPG conversions can be done in such a way that you can switch to gasoline, or back to propane, with a toggle switch added to the dash.
Stroking a 351W to 393 doesn't change any of that. It gives you more torque, and a bit more fuel consumption under most conditions.
Gasoline doesn't like as much compression as the gaseous fuels, but building a nice compromise can be done on a tight budget.
