Since getting LPG fitted to my NL fairlane, the trip computer can let me know how far I can go on a tank of gas. Was this because the LPG/petrol toggle switch was wired up with the standard fuel gauge?

Sounds like it... be warned tho... the trip meter bases fuel consumption on injector pulse width IIRC... which has little relation to the amount of LPG being used...
