the current 4.2 petrol (1993 model) is getting very tired, so looking at the option of putting in a V8 (308 or 350). Currently on dual fuel LPG with vehicle doing lots of K's and lots of towing (horse float).
Any expirenance on the above greatly appreciated getting conflicting reports on engine to use.

LPG + V8 + 4WD = HUGE fuel consumption...

that just means the original petrol motor is very thirsty too...the fuel consumption will still be huge (20-30l/100km depending on conditions and over 50l/100km in sand) with any big petrol motor combined with gas in a a 4WD. Many people reckon you only use 10% more LPG than petrol, but my experience with 4 different vehicles running well-tuned LPG systems is that you will use more than this...
