You wil have more cash in your pocket on weekly basis from the day it is fitted to budget for other mods.

just make sure if you do the lpg conversion you get a system that will support power mods. I read somewhere the other day that some vapor inj. systems wont handle power upgrades and switch back to petrol by themselves.

IMO thats a flawed concept. You couild just not spend the $2200 in the first place and buy Exhaust + underdrives + Cai + Tune.

Unless your doing 30,000km+ a year I wouldn't bother with LPG as it's going to take years to get a return on the $2200 you had to outlay for the vapour injection system.

Thats unless of cause you go with mixer type system which will mostly be covered by the rebate but I wouldn't trust them as far as I can throw it.

EDIT: I just realised both your rides are on LPG MadMatt. *flamesuit*

It costs me about $70 per week for 350kms city driving on BP Ultimate. For the exact same driving it would probably cost me $45 on LPG.

so to make back $2200 it would take 88 weeks or close to two years to make my money back on a saving of $25 a week - no thanks.
