I have just had my V8 Grand Cherokee converted to LPG. It runs an injected gas system, utililised a 46 litre doughnut tank in the spare wheel cavity (a larger 66? litre tank is available, requires lowering the spare wheel cavity), and the filler is where the fuel filler point is. It starts on fuel and auto switches to gas once the eng reaches about 40 degrees. It does use a bit more gas than fuel but is saving us at least $50 a week already. The conversion was not cheap at $5500 (total $3500 less the $2000 rebate), but it was expected due to all the electronics on this vehicle (apparently Discos and Explorers are the same). Injected Gas HAS to be used on this vehicle due to the plastic intake manifold.

The conversion was done by a company called LP GAS 1 in Minchinbury (Sydney region) (02) 6977 9441 or www.lpgas1.com.au. They also have numerous franchises in Victoria. I am extremely happy with the job and their customer service.

Allot of places up here (Hunter region) said it was too hard or just flat out wouldn't do it making up all sorts of crap reasons. I found a bloke in Edgeworth who said he would do it if he had the same computer program, but it would be a 6 month wait. I had the jeep booked in in a week and a half with LP Gas 1. The job took 2 days

I will be getting a wheel carrier in the next couple of months. A company called Formulae Off Road in Sydney make them, and they are mounted off the towbar. They aren't too bad price wise either $1500 fitted including the tow bar.

Love the Jeep, bought it 2nd hand for $23,990 with 80,000k on the clock. Excellent value for money.
