My neighbour is selling his 1998 6 cylinder auto Landcruiser which has been converted to LPG. It's immaculate, so I'm very interested. Would appreciate any feedback on how well this conversion works and if there are any negative aspects of running on LPG on this model Landcruiser ?

gday john.
when you get the vehicle inspected for a pre purchase inspection they will tell you if there seems to be anything wrong with the head(compresion test)
about $120 is better than a lot of hear ache and $$$$$$$$$.
just remember all that glitters is not over no fraser.
get on with life(more weekend fun)

Hi It really depends on who did the conversion and how well they did it. All cruisers need the flashlube bottle to add oil to the inlet as the valve seats need it on these models. A check of valve clearance will save many$$ later if you do buy it. They need checking every 40000kms with gas.
Otherwise they are a good contender for running on lpg.

John don't know of any negative aspects with this vehicle but there are many negative aspects to having gas in any 4wd if you intend to tow or go go to any remote locations. They mainly centre on availability and then range between refills. That's why most 4wders use diesel. If it's a city car then gas is good.

I assume you're talking about the 4.5lt. I have a 75 series with a 4.5lt, on gas. Installed at 90,000ks. I bought the vehicle at 130,000ks, has now done 215,000ks.
A bit of backfiring at first but a good mechanic fixed that. NO other problems at all. Basically the engine is bullet proof. The vehicle is a manual - fuel consumption on petrol 5.6ks per litre and gas 4.6ks per litre.
