Car: 95 fairmont ghia - 5 speed running tickford manual j3 chip (soon to be au motor)
mods: biggest wade cam, extractors, bigger snorkle

questions: how much power will i actually lose with gas? can i get the original power on petrol if i remove the lpg mixer ring temporarily ? (as told by "the fed" on forums)

Where do i actually fill the gas up from? is it next to the normal petrol hole?

What can i expect my economy to be on lpg, provided im getting around 14l/100 average at the moment on petrol

being a big cam, with power mostly above 3000rpm, i hear lpg run out of puff in the higher rev range, will this make the car completely gutless on lpg?

you'll run duel fuel set up so the power loss is in the air intake to throttle body since the piping is restrictive. what i am going to do is buy a gas research mixer and hook it up to the intake with BA gear or just cutom 3" piping. Joe at crescent confirmed he would do the work for around $350 excluding parts. then you flick it on petrol and you have no worries with restricive air flow, but the benefits of lpg for daily driving

in duel fuel they whack another hole next to the petrol cap for gas, very simple and looks fine is inside the fuel flap. both holes fit fine.

so far my petty/lpg useage is the same, i was getting about 14 also. 50c verse 1.30 i know what im using.

lpg is no worries with the cam once you remove the restrictive air pipe and get a bigger mixer. that will allow enough air to flow so that the cam can function sweet (seems logical, but not 100% sure. 100% sure on everything else)

hit me up for the 100$ off :):):)
