Whats the cost for that there. it will take a lot likely to brake even. But we've hit $1.34-9/10 here today. Times that by 4.54 for the CND Gallon and Joy at the Government and Oil giants. HST on gas must be booming $$$ in on every liter. Its $100 to fill my tank in the Grand Cherokee I've been out in lately.

well the cost of the conversion is around 1500 euros therefore I estimate that it will take about 8 months to recover the investment... After that, the cost to run the car will be half price instead of gasoline... its a one way street for me..

been running with it for about a week now. Fuel costs have been reduced to half. I did have a small issue as the car would jerk at around 1500 rpm... they shop reprogrammed the fuel intake and it seems to have been reduced .. about 90%... The shop said that I probably need heavy duty spark plugs (?) as LPG demands more spark... ???

I don`t know about heavy duty spark plugs. You could try pulstar plugs as they are a lot strong than any other irdium plug out there. You could also look at upgrading to A high out put MSD ignition. I would try the plugs first because the MSD costs a lot more. The pulse plugs are $13 a piece.

The problem was solved by the installer...they didnt say what they did, but I suspect that it was a faulty part. Car runs extremely well and fortunatly no other issues have come up!
