ours is on LPG too so if you know anything or i have missed any info please let me know...

Laura,

Can't tell you fully loaded on roofrack, we have the same 94 manual dual fuel.
Without roof rack but moderate load we do 400km on LPG (85l) on HWY and approx 320km city. Our tank is in the back so we have both petrol tanks still, before fitting LPG we used to fill up after approx 650km from both tanks,with fuel light on app 30 l remained. So gas and petrol should give app 1200km range on HWY.

Hope this helps somehow

Regards

Greg

I have an 80 series GXL 1994 dual fuel .... My petrol tank hold about 95 lt. of petrol + 110 Lt. of gas ( 92 only usable!!) .
I have also a big toofrack (4 pegs + mesh in heavy iron...) .
On petrol I can drive about 480 - 500 km .... on gas only 350km!
Hope this help you .....
