Sorry, dunno about fitting lpg to a Holden ADVENTRA (I asume it is this vehicle as i don't think they make anything called "Adventurer").

However, lpg is not freely available at all servo's....guess it depends on what you class as "in the bush"......Some people would classify Goulburn (if they live in Sydney), or Toowoomba (if they live in Brisbane) etc etc....as being "in the bush".

Most larger towns (with a populations over say 3000) would have a servo with lpg. When you get to places like Tibooburra, Innaminka, Birdsville etc; forget it.

I think most of the larger fuel companies have a listing of where lpg is available; try their websites...

Funny you should mention this. I've just been re-working the website for LPG Autogas (which was an abomination - and still is until I finish it), and there are some tools available on one of the ALPGA (Australian LPG Association) that are linked back to Autogas's site.

If you go to the ALPGA website and click on the button called "Find your nearest Autogas outlet/installer" then you will see where they all are. Just type in your destination and a map will come up with all outlets in that area - and what company owns them (Shell, BP, etc).

Also, you could go to the LPG Autogas site (even though I haven't changed the look and feel yet from the people who originally wrote it) to get the full guff on LPG.

I reckon it would be easier to sell it and buy the new V6 version. They get the 190KW motor and 5speed auto and start under $40 grand. Having paid over $50 new? you might break even.
