Hi Guys,

I've purchased a dedicated LPG engine that I planning on rebuilding and fitting it into my petrol XR6 ute and running NA for the time being (Turbo charger at a later date). Do these engines run OK in petrol only? I know that they have a higher compression ratio, but was wondering it would run Ok on just petrol, ULP 98 throught to ULP91.

Cheers,

Paul :)

Hi mate from what I've heard yes but you need to run it on 98-higher the octane the better.
