Hi everyone, new here but plan to visit often. I personally own a '92 75 series ute with a 1HZ and huge after market turbo which punches out a massive amount of torque. My question though, is in regards to the family wagon. We have an '80 series that runs predominately on gas (actually, at the moment that's all it will run on). I am on a mission to get the car running like a dream. Firstly, I am replacing the fuel filter to eliminate that possibly being the fuel problem, before removing the injectors to have them reco'd. The new wife (her car) 'never' ran it on petrol. 2nd can anyone tell me, remembering it runs predominately on gas, what is the best plugs/leads.cap etc money can buy for said wagon.

For gas run as heavy ignition leads as you can get usually 9mm
Go to a colder plug and close the gap up to 1 mm
The petrol injectors usually clog up on when running gas so run fual injector cleaner regularly and I was also told to put a litre of diesel into a tank of petrol which is suppose to help keep the injectors clean
Run petrol regularly

As he said - Spark plugs must be one range colder and the gap 20% smaller than OEM specs.

As for leads - don't use ones with carbon cores. Try and source High Tension wire cored ones.

I a previous life, when I had a commodore, I run it on Bosch HR7DCY plugs.
Don't even know if they still do them any more...
Run like a dream.

Here is a link to a post on LPG problem I had

And another

From my experience getting the advice from an expert is the way to go , if you live near Brisbane give Scott a ring at Metropolitan Autogas (07 32560333)

I have since sold the 80 series,\.
