Hi All,
I am wondering if anyone has a decent system, and LPG installed in their car. I Can get a second hand conversion installed for $800 (Then claim the $2000 rebate from the govt 8-) ).

My Question is, Will the gas tank have any affect on the sound from the sub, and will the sub have any effect on the gas tank. I have tried seraching, but iit seems that nobody has gas AND a system :?

At the moment, I have an L7 in my boot, that runs at 750 WRMS, and I dont want to lost it, just because of a gas conversion.

Any Help/Suggestions/advice would be appreciated

you'll loose a little bit of bass... but its not that bad.
I've got LPG and a single sub... worst part is lack of space.

You can avoid all of this if you install a donut tank, it sits in where your spare tire goes.

Lack of room in the boot is a bummer

I am not too concerned about room in the boot. I dont use the boot anyway. I was worried about the negative effects on the sound, and on the LPG 8-)

I run two inch subs and twin LPG tanks.
mind you ... my subs are behind the driver and passenger seat in the cabin ... and the tanks are under the ute body.

Yeah I am cheating ... two 12s in a ute cabin = blurred vision and difficult breathing.
