i was speaking to a friends friend and i dunno if what he says is for real.. but anyway:
he said to not to have a subwoofer in the boot if you have gas, as there can't be too much vibration in the boot or the tank could rupture or some sh*t like that.

any feedback?

it COULD set up a vibration due to resonant frequencies etc etc, but i doubt it would be a problem. The tanks are desinged to withstand a heap of pressure. Id be more worryin about a spark igniting the gas, but again, gas tanks shouldnt leak!

Be careful who sees you say that...
There's a few LPG lovers on this site!

I've got duel fuel, and am about to install a 12" sub.
Only problem I can see is that it probably won't get as much sound transfer to the cabin.

The issue is that the tank is generally mounted under the parcel shelf making installation of a sub in the parcel shelf difficult, it can be done with the factory 8" and factory spacer.

There will be no problems running a sub with a gas tank. There is no way possible you could rupture the tank as the tank skin is approx 6mm thick. If it was the case all windows with sub installs should be smashing all over the place!!!

yea, getting a barbecue to run on petrol alone is a b**ch..... good for starting a wood fired barbecue, but thats it

LPG on the other hand..... good controllable flame and hotplate temp, easy to light and no danger of a bushfire afterwards..... lousy for grilling though
