im one of those having major issues with my gas setup, there is a reason i havnt just ripped the system out, it saves a s**t of cash, and helps my friday nights out rather considerably.

my car on petrol alone, costs HEAPS (i mean HEAPS) to run, even though i do 90% highway, you must own a gas car before you can have a go at them as it is a huge saving.

Some people will never learn, they hear a cpl of bad things and it turns them off it. In 17 years i've never had any major dramas, it's actually more reliable than petrol with injectors clogging and fuel pumps s**t themselves.

My old man has got a ZL on LPG, economy is s**t and always has been compared to EA upwards.
He also has an NC which is very economical on petrol, and because of that he wont put it on LPG, he thinks it'll be like his ZL... I'm still trying to convince him otherwise because he'll save s**t.
Don't knock anything unless you've tried it, it's always people who tell you not to do or try certain things and yet they haven't even done it themselves.


I've had 2 duel fuel cars in past years that were nothing but trouble. One was a V8 XC the other was a series 2 EA. Why would I be tempted to go for another? That's why I have a dedicated gas BA.

Don't worry about converting your car mate. there isn't enough tanks to go around at the moment so I'll just take yours. :D


I f**k love that post!

Ah well, i'll drink to those too silly to see the truth about a well setup gas system, and someone else such as you benno can take their tank!

People do remember petrol systems can cause just as many problems don't they? OH wait, they can't, that's why they think the way they do about LPG. Too bad, i've got dibs on a tank for my mighty boy, if i can get one small enough. ROFL.

Cheers

Well, i only bothered to measure the first tank, i ended up doing 560 k's to 66 litres, that's with the car loaded with s**t and sitting on 115 to 120 k's the whole way.
I set the mixtures right though, not lean and not rich, i definately could have pulled more out but i don't like a lean mix with LPG.
I ended up doing 4350 k's in the 12 days i was away, the car didn't miss a beat except on petrol, the injectors are starting to f**k up but still runs ok.
