We did the the Tanamai Track, Halls Creek, Bungles GRR Broome etc last July in a Patrol Dual Fuel with a trailer. We found gas at all the roadhouses on the asphalt, but nothing on the dirt. No gas at Mt Barnett

Hi John
Here are a few sites that list the LP gas stations in the area you are travelling.

John I like Ray's suggestion but I would put in a quick phone call before departure to appropriate operators who are specified, just to check that their supply plants were OK. You of course know the mileage you are getting so calculate your likely refill points.
It would be interesting in due course to see your costs and mileages put up on the "fuel consumption" bulletin board on EOz, you might be laughing all the way to the bowser.
Just a couple of questions: 1. I imagine there is no possibility of contaminated fuel with gas? 2. Is there any change in the power output of converted vehicles (sounds religious but I mean HP) ?
3. What is the safety factor in the hot hot outback ? Thanks
Good luck with it
