Hi pjd,
Try Parnell in Vic.
They are the top of the line (as in most expensive) but IMO also the best system.

HI Craig,
I am looking into a system but live in Queensland so I can't go to Parnell (whereever that is).
Are you able to tell me the brand name of your system?
If you don;t want to post it on here can you email me?


havilahheights@aapt.net.au

Is it a pre or post turbo injection system?
Is it computer controlled (electronic) or mechanical injection (based on turbo boost)?
It is very difficult to get a comparison of different types of systems.
So your experience is quite valuable to someone researching it,
Thanks,
Cgheers,
Glen

Hi,
Sorry I must have misunderstood you. I though you asked where in Vic.. I thought you meant Victoria. Anyway Parnell are nationwide but are based in Laverton. Check their site LPG Gas

pjd,, The gas does not go through the injectors, it is injected into the air intake. No it will not dry anything out, it simply helps the diesel fuel to burn more efficiently resulting in more power and a better fuel consumption. You will be happy with it I am sure... Regards Nav.

Pjd

A guy I work with has a gas system fitted to his 4.2lt patrol. Talking about it last night he said it dosent do much for city driving but for the runs he does from Perth to Albany and Esperence and also up north it makes a difference in both economy and power. He was recommending it to another workmate but was saying he would only have it done if he was holding onto the venicle for a few more years.
Overall he was happy he had had it done. Not sure how many kms he has done but has had it fitted over a year ago.
