First time here...hope someone can help....
Has anyone had a 4.8 Patrol converted to LPG by the new vapor injection system???
Have recently bought a 4.8 ST GUIII (auto) Patrol on petrol with the intention to convert it to LPG asap. It IS thirsty on petrol (but the power is great!).
I have heard a lot of negative feedback re: conversion of Patrol 4.8's in particular to LPG by the old (carby) system. Hoping to find someone who has one converted by the injection system who can tell me how it's going for them??
Have only found one person here in Adelaide who has had it done and he has had trouble, though he blames the fitter.
Any comments greatly appreciated!

Hi Hooley,
I wouldn't hesitate mate, although i'm surprised you'd go for the vapour injection over the standard venturi system if you actually had a choice. Don't get me wrong, the vapour injection system is pretty good but it's also a fair whack more expensive so thats simply more driving you've gotta do before you even make your money back let alone make a profit from your investment.
We literally converted a 4.8 GU 2002 today. They come up a really nice fit. They can be tricky from a fitters point of view if they have a 2nd battery fitted 'cause the battery goes exactly where the gas converter is supposed to go but at the end of the day they come up pretty good.
The most important thing is to not skimp on the qualiyt of the equipment you fit. There are a few brands on the market but make sure you go for the Sprint Gas equipment - OMVL + AEB. This is something that can put you on the side of the road if it gives you trouble so be fussy with what you fit & you'll never look back.
