    welcome to the forum
    Buonvenuto (?)

    GPL is that our LPG i.e. liquefied propane gas?

    I'm afraid you'll find very little info here about those, this is a very unusual conversion in the US. We just gobble gas out here!

    You may want to try the International section. There are some British folks there who may know...

    LPG is a popular conversion for petrol Cruisers in Australia due the the cost of fuel. The early Cruisers suffered from burnt valves from using LPG but the later models that were produced to run on unleaded petrol had harder valves and valve seats and therefore did not suffer the same fate.

    The big consideration is the cost of fitting compared to fuel prices. Here at the moment it is cheaper to run a petrol cruiser on gas than a deisel cruiser

    Thank you very much at every body for the prompt reply!!! :bounce2:
    My 80 is unleaded petrol and I feel good the conversion, in Italy one petrol liter cost 1.24 Euro one liter LPG cost is 0.51 Euro.
    I have seen different LPG inection, sequenziale and not sequenziale, I am going on and as soon as possible I'll give you a feedback.

    Ciao
