i got quoted, in june this year to convert ANY falcon over to gas $1600. a few months ago my brother converted his magna over and cost $2200, so i assumed the price went up due to the demand ect etc, i got quoted from the same place to do the au $2400! fair enough the prices went up but how can he justify a magna being cheaper to convert over than a falcon?? every other place said due to the taxis falcons are alot easier to convert over (prob labor is cheaper as they know what they are doing). i booked it in with him anyway because his work is good and he is the cheapest i know of... but im still trying to understand why the magna was cheaper....

No idea why the magna was cheaper - maybe smaller mixer or tank?

If it helps, my EF just cost $2400 and my AU wagon is booked in at $2900. Unfortunately that was the cheapest I could find for the AU.

maybe there using different gear these days?
perhaps before they were using cheap s**t gear and have now changed to something better due to the high failure/warrenty rate?

My AU was done 2-3 months ago for $2900. I reckon (at least in WA, where the total rebate is $3000) they are just bumping it up as close as possible to the $3000, nobody is complaining because they are still essentially getting it for free.

Plus I wouldn't be surprised if the tanks themselves have gone up in price too, there seems to be a constant shortage of them.

I got mine done last April for $2300, However, that included a new air cleaner filter and new spark plugs.

I also got $100 off as my gas tank is dated 2005, not 2006.

Its also the fact that demand has raised since the rebate was introduced.

I paid just over $3k for my conversion back in the middle of '04. About double the standard conversion then, because i went for LPG Injection. I wish the grant was around then!

Demand & the grant are part of what's driving prices up, also is the part that they need to use newer & more expensive hardware to meet legal & emissions requirements now. I've heard LPGI setup's are around $4k now. :shock: But with the grant that isn't too bad.

LPG has come a long way from slapping a tank into a car, fitting the change over switch, slapping in a crappy AMOS ring under the air cleaner & wiring it up!

Cheers
