I've devised the following calculator that will allow you to plug in all the numbers for an LPG conversion, and work out whether you want to go ahead with it.

Its an excel spreadsheet, and you'll need at least Excel XP, or something that can read that format to use it.
All fields marked YELLOW are changeable, to customise it to your own situation.

PS NOW UPDATED - included KMS until paid off including rebate.

Thanks for that

FYI I have Longreach ute on LPG since 2008 and just updated to a One toner tradesman
The Longreach has been used for ten tow jobs with tandem froma s far away as Coffs Harbour to Western VIC and run in my business now 295000 km having done 130000 since conversiona nd rebate.
Vapour system averages 10L/100KM and LPG has gone from 33 to top 83 Cpl
ULP gone from below $1 to $1.50+
I have been able toc harge out my KM at the commercial rate and made a profit.
Now have One toner on an AEB systm with 275000 km starting ks and new engine and I expect to do the same thing until I retire next year.
The folks who say LPG NWR are flawed in their thinking
Engine oil changes every 5000k are tan at worst never black
Filters every 10000.
I try for SHELL GAS oil but GTX is fine.

Pulled the Longreach engine down to use the pan / sump and nil deposits after 130000 km and slightly recessed valves in 1 and 2 causing leak down.

New vehicle has upper cylinder lubrication system.
FWIW but I always start and run until hot on ULP anyway with very few issues.

2 cents
