    Sounds like a good opportunity. Quick payback of the investment and a reduction in CO2 emissions. I'd do it...

    Plus am pretty sure it improves torque??? If I lived over there I am positive I would do it or diesel..........esp. with a Cruiser

    I seem to recall Jim Phillips posting on this a while back. IIRC, power was reduced (and presumably torque too), though economy was up. You might want to PM him and ask him about it.

    You will get less HP... Just so you know. We converted an old farm truck to LP and she was gutless. To keep the same power you have to raise compression.

    Jim Phillips' 80 had an LPG conversion. The tank was in the boot. His was also able to use petrol so his was a true dual-fuel setup

    Why thank you. :D

    The wulf is not the only Yank that can spell "tyre" you know.............:D

    If I had told Snowwolf that Jim's 80 ran on gas or barbeque fuel and that he had his tank in the cargo area it would have gotten him all confused........... :confused:

    You Americans take the BISCUIT or is that COOKIE!

    Last week while out driving I had a "TRAMP" walk infront of my car and he ended up on my "BONNET" and was dead as a dodo, before anyone could see I dragged the "TRAMP" by his "BRACES" and quickly put him in the "BOOT" of the car, I noticed he had a "BUM" bag attached to his waist and inside was a dirty old "NAPPY" an half eaten "BISCUIT" a kids game of "DRAUGHTS" and a "SPANNER" and he also had a "RING" on his finger, as I pulled at the "BUM" bag it got snagged on the "BUMPER" and all the contents fell on the "PAVEMENT" outside the "GROUND FLOOR" "FLAT" that had an "ALUMINIUM" "COLOURED" front door, which I thought was strange! I opened the door and inside was a "PUSHCHAIR" which had a can of "PETROL" in it, I quickly put the "PETROL" in the "BOOT" of the car, dumped the "TRAMP" in the un used "LAUNDRETTE" next door and wiped my hands on the "NAPPY" as they got covered in "PETROL" and got back in the car, it was then I noticed I had a crack in my "WINDSCREEN" which must have been caused by a "SPANNER" that was in the "BUM" bag. what a nightmare of a day!

    Jim Phillips now uses Bio Diesel and produces so much that he can not use it all, and no one else seems to want it. :eek:

    So if a biscuit is a cookie then what do you call a biscuit? A scone?

    Also how are ring and pavement British?

    LOL :D Wuffie. (your avatar looks just like my dog did by the way)

    What really concerns me is that you think nothing of wiping your hands on a tramp's nappy. Don't think I'd ever do that... :D

    Last week while out driving I had a "BUM" walk infront of my car and he ended up on my "HOOD" and was dead as a dodo, before anyone could see I dragged the "BUM" by his "SUSPENDERS" and quickly put him in the "TRUNK" of the car, I noticed he had a "FANNY" bag attached to his waist and inside was a dirty old "DAIPER" an half eaten "COOKIE" a kids game of "CHECKERS" and a "WRENCH" and he also had a "BAND" on his finger, as I pulled at the "FANNY" bag it got snagged on the "FENDER" and all the contents fell on the "SIDEWALK" outside the "FIRST FLOOR" "APARTMENT" that had an "ALUMINUM" "COLORED" front door, which I thought was strange! I opened the door and inside was a "STROLLER" which had a can of "GAS" in it, I quickly put the "GAS" in the "TRUNK" of the car, dumped the "BUM" in the un used "LAUNDROMAT" next door and wiped my hands on the "DAIPER" as they got covered in "GAS" and got back in the car, it was then I noticed I had a crack in my "WINDSHIELD" which must have been caused by a "WRENCH" that was in the "FANNY" bag. what a nightmare of a day!
