The real shame about the system - another great Australian design that appears stuck at the investor stage. I've made enquiries about this system on and off for the last few years and I tell you, I fear its going to either end up a shelved idea or be taken up by a foreign interest just like so many other great Aussie inventions.

I've forwarded another email expressing interest in the system but this time raised the possibility (and I am making a presumpion here) that more than a few E'Series Ford owners with modified engines are interested in perhaps a group purchase with some marketing tradeoffs in their favour.

We have been expressing interest in such a setup for as long as I've been part of Fordmods. How many of you are actually keen on pushing forward if the opportunity should ever arise? More to the point, who's in the position to put their money where there mouth is?

Nigel, what are your ideas on the subject. What is your relationship with the designer and are you in the position to open further dialogue?

The way I understand it, a testing phase has been ongoing over the last few years (Nigel is probably included as part of this phase). Recently newer production vehicle retro-fitting has been demonstrated to the market obviously targeting the car manufacturers for a production-line offering. Why not the upgrading of pre-existing petrol models and show the market that individualy modified vehicles can all be made to perform? Why not us?

So people, what do you think? Is it worth exploring this past the 'I wish I/piss'n'wind' stage? What are your ideas?

Im definatly keen on this but i already have a gas setup. I guess it i just need it to be injected :D. I contacted bill a few months ago only to be disappointed that he doesnt have the funfd for this. Come on guys lets see if we can do this, i mean look its a cheaper way of fuelling your cars which if injected can give you the same power if not more than petrol, plus lpg has less wear on your engine

Do you see any draw backs?? i dont

I am/was/is part of the trial!. I had my EB converted at 160000km, and at 300000km (last time we checked) was still way better than current emission standards.

My Feelings? - hell I dont know. I keep in touch with Bill, and as soon as i know anything more you'll hear from me. Im sure that the exposure on New Inventors would have helped out.

Personally I wouldnt go back to Petrol, or to any other LPG system. Ive used GasResearch both in Single and Dual Throttle body instalations and theres no way it even gets close to competing!.

Cheers

Nigel

These are my feeling too. Anyone who has made enquiries would know the present injected setups on offer all appear to be maxing out at 200kw outputs (on 6 cylinder setups). I also get the impression that Vialle gas injection may be less than a completely developed offering with the common advice from gas fitters being to wait it out until the setups become more refined. If setting up poses so much difficulty, how finicky a system are we talking about to maintain and what of reliability?

I paid 0.32c per litre for LPG this morning (approx $23.00 for 60 litres). To everyone out there the setup costs are easily justifiable. If a reliable system was on offer that did not lock you into a fixed configuration or power output.

I'll post up the response once I receive it.

I am very interested in buying this setup, but as far as putting my money where my mouth is depends greatly on just how much money I have to put there.

Hold that thought, lets see if it's actually on the table first.

Nigel...... how long have you known Bill Campbell for, mate I've known him from Impco tecnoligies & Gasman days & I 've asked several time about buying a set up for several of my customers & he wouldn't sell me a kit hence why I;m constantly looking at other systems eg, Viallie liquid injection but the problem with this set up is the tank & pump is only good for up to 200kw....So from what I was told after the program went to air he has now some serious investors aproxx (1.5mill) & has 2 to pick from....know the only problem is there once & who ever invests with him I will bet that the kit will be only avaliable from certin dealers & at there elected price.......................I hope I'm wrong!!.
Anyway from what was said the kits once there in production would'nt be avaliable for at least another 12 months or so.

Nigel, give me a call I would like to know how you aquired that kit.

Cheers
