i've heard on the grape-vine that u can now get a gas conversion kit for diesels. I own a 80 series cruiser, just wondering if anyone out there can shed some light on the pros and cons. Also prices and power specs?

It is called gas fumigation. You do not replace the diesel, but ad 12 - 25% extra LGP depending on the load of the engine. There was an excellent article on it in the West Australian recently Just found a copy). 26l LPG tank and the normal diesel tank. The article stated the guy nearly doubled his range and only used 1 LGP tank to 2 Diesel tanks. $3000 fitted for a standard conversion, in this case a Landcruiser 100 T/D. Canges to setting can only be performed by the dealer. Can forward the document if you require

Aston,

Sounds great, but i still can't get my head around the fact that there is a bottle of LPG in the vehicle that is feeding gas to the inlet manifold. A small leak at the bottle and you might end up in a few different postcodes.

No different to LPG powered vehicles. The setup in Aust not as "aggricultural" as the one in the attache document. The same standards apply to both vehicle installation types. Unlike petrol powered cars, there are no ignition sources in a diesel (that is why they are used in the mines).
