Hi All
I Have a GU Patrol 1998 4500 looking at putting it on gas what would be the best kit and if anyone has got one what sort of power difference is there and do these vehicles have any problems like the GQ's use to. Also what sort of economy do they get as I tow a 20Ft van. At the Moment I get anywhere from 3.7-4.2 Klm Per Litre depending on the driving conditions. Any advice would be great

Thanks

What you realy REALY want is a gas/fuel injection system to get "reasonable" economy under load like towing....silverback

Gday JT. I have a 4500 Patrol on Gas. Been on gas since new in 1999. now 300000 KLMS. No problems. I pull 18 ft van, Same consumption as petrol. 3.5 to 5 kms per litre on the flat, no wind.

I get about 26L/100km on lpg regardless if I'm cruising at 110kmh or driving in the city, but I don't drive for economy. Towing increases it quite a bit. Mine is auto and from what I've found the manuals get much better economy. Just cruising around I don't notice any difference in power but when using what power the motor has, I definately notice the difference. After almost 30k I haven't had any problems yet.

I would go for the injection type installation. I haven't had any personal experience with this system but all my research points towards similar economy and power compared to running on petrol.

Cheers
Nick

I think The injection type is the way to go but the price scares me a bit at $5500.00 that is with a long range sub tank installed in place of the old one which hold 75Lt
