good systems, minimal power loss, big loss of boot space, not nesasary to remove injectors, fuel tank gets removed during install.

On a 6cyl falcon you are looking at around $2600-$2700, the higher fuel prices go the higher there installs go too so if your doing it doit now.

I've got it in mine.
Goes alright, though i can't comment that much since my cars running useless from the cam timing (soon to be sorted)

i already had LPG tank and lines, so i only had to pay for the underbonnet stuff + install, and it was about $1300 from memory
add to that a tank and LPG lines and you'll be up over $2k easy.

my injectors are still in there, but my mates got plugs to fill the holes, something i'll be doing soon.

i used to work 4 a workshop that installed gas research so i might have to ring the old boss and get the prices.....hope hes not still p****d off with me. sounds ok tho im sort of figuring in the fact that in a couple of years the car will become the weekender and get some forced induction so i figure i might as welll go all out on the gas system now and save money later

When you talk about under the bonnet, does that include the electronics of it? like that control box thingo?

yep.
basically everything needed to change ur LPG system to a GRA one.
only thing i'm using from the old system is Tank, lines and switch.

EFFalcon, I've just got off the phone with GRA and they reckon they don't do a straight L.P.G. system for EF's, but I read above that yours is? Care to explain please? Did you jsut buy the duel fuel one and mod it to be straight LPG?

there is no difference.
the dual fuel setup and straight LPG setup is the same thing.
the only thing is basically removing the petrol system, and making it start on LPG.

my car is currently still Dual Fuel, but there would be NOTHING to gain by removing the petrol system, tahnks to the EF's coil packs and lock of adjustable ignition timing.

my mates EA (which has EF Dash/engine/ecu etc)
had a straight LPG conversion done on it for a supercharger, his setup is 100% like mine excecpt for the addition of an extra LPG line and converter.

Patience, or Aerostart. From experience cold starts take a little while though once warmed up they start first time.
