Location: Bunbury
WA, Australia

My personal experiance is this

2008 BFII Petrol XL Utility

$110 to fill, 500km to a tank around town

2008 EGAS LPG XL Utility

$55-$60 to fill, 550-600km to a tank around town (90L tank)

which is basically half the running cost, and MORE range.

Just did a run in my old EL on gas (now my brother's) Went from Canberra to inner North Sydney and back. Did just on 600km, averaged 12L/100km and cost 8c/km.
Factory Vialle gas and 300,000 kms on the engine.
Sat on 110-120km on the highway and probably 1.5hrs in city traffic total.

Ride: Ford BA GT

Location: Adelaide
SA, Australia

We purchased a new BA Series 1 Station Wagon, in May 2004, as soon as the warrenty ran out we put Gas on her.
Dual Fuel for Holidays, as myself and missus still enjoy the great Australian road trip, when on Annual leave.
It cut our fuel costs in half....

But you know what.....we traded her in for a second hand mint condition BA GT with only 51000 ks on the Clock.

Now we run a 5.4 litre V8 with SS cold air induction, pace maker headers and a D&T Sports exhaust.

xxxx the cost of the petrol.... and the Holidays is a whole lot more fun.

GT means Grand Tourer...not, Garage Terminated, gathering dust during the Holidays !

Yeeeeehaaaaa ! Squeal....Vroooom boom boom boom boom boom boom boom boom boom boom boom
