Advice needed.

I am wanting to convert my 2006 BF XL utility, 4 speed auto, from factory LPG to petrol. The reason being I do a fair bit of traveling out west and LPG is getting harder to get in regional towns and I'm not wanting to spend quite few thousand dollars on extra gas cylinders and losing room in the back of my utility. I have a damaged but still running 2009 FG cab/chassis (petrol) that I have picked up for a song, less tray, diff and transmission.

Since being a bit of an old coot and an ex-military mechanic (retired) I do know one end of a spanner from the other but this new technology can sometimes do my head in. Thus asking for some advice.

Swapping over the fuel tanks and lines are pretty much a given. Will the engine swap over be a simple bolt out bolt in operation or is there differences in the mounting up of the FG engine? Will the PCM and the compete engine and engine bay wiring harness have to be changed as well and is it a simple plug and play operation? Is the fuel tank wiring harness for the fuel pump and fuel sender unit going to be a simple plug and play operation? Am I going to have to swap over the front x-members to fit the FG engine? Any advice or step process would be gratefully appreciated.

Cheers.

My understanding is you will have to change over all the wiring etc including the PCM/ICC etc to make it plug & play.

everything else ... not sure

FG stuff electronically is likely not compatible with BF, They did have different part numbers on the PCM's and had different clusters, and body modules

To do it with BF stuff i think i have listed everything that would require changing.

PCM/ECU will require changing, Manifold will require changing Engine wire loom will need changing, Lhs engin bay loom will need changing as will the left hand side of the "H" loom under the carpet.

You will then need to make up/ find some fuel lines and a fuel tank to mount in there.

cluster will work all fine but yor fuel level will be out

Lots of work

to do it with FG you would probably need to do the entire wiring and dash of the car.

Might be easier to just swap or trade it for a BF or FG petrol model. unless you really want to spend the $$ or love the car
