A team is currently driving an LPG Falcon around mainland Australia with the aim to do it using less that $1000 LPG! You can follow their progress on the Ford website here!

Looks like they'll do it too!

i think it's strange for them to go by a $$ amount. LPG would be different prices everywhere around the country! and are they paying pump price or company price? i know here at work we don't pay pump price on the bp cards....

few flaws in the way they're going about it, but i think it's a good idea to show how far you can go! reminds me of the "torture test" they did back in the 60's with (i think, correct me if i'm wrong) the xp's. driven round the clock flat out!

They are paying PUMP price & they should have done in a V8 then look at the sales FORD would get & develop E-GAS for the V8 donk.
