Hey Guys,
i have an XH XR6 and at the moment i'm just working on getting her looking exactly the way i want her.
I'm tossing up putting Gas on her but i just wonder if the dual conversion will impeed on any performance mods i want to do in the future.
cheers guys!

if you set it up right there is more power to be had from lpg and you can still turbo or supercharge it aswell http://www.gasresearch.com.au/ if i had the money i would convert mine solely to lpg i recon i could fit 2 tanks under the tray where the spare goes and then i could remove the fule tank and put anouther sub in :D

Thanks alot guys, it hasn't even been 24 hours and my question has been answered!!!
looks like i might get the conversion done soon, to beat the possible removal of the subsidy.

*Increasing the compression ratio, shaving too much off will cause problems with petrol, so better too little than too much!

Also its little improvement considering how much its worth!

Yeah lpg is good :)
