no no rebate asu have gas already

you would need to take car to gas place and get them to remove convertor and look at it

could be a new gasket is all that is needed or a whole new conveter

If you are mildly dexterious, most converters are really easy to "recondition", just follow the instructions

Just ask your friendly gas person to get in for you a kit to suit your converter. Be warned, however, converter kits for converters like Landi cost a bomb.( $150+), whereas the converter cost about $700

The cost of a kit for an Aussi B2 is about $70. But it is cheaper than buying a new converter. :)
