    Yes but it also saves a lot of fuel.

    And vxsuper6, I am pretty sure that it can be converted. There may be some issues with the forced induction mixed with gas thing but I'm sure any qualified installer will overcome it.

    gas dosent burn at the same rate as petrol
    so like if your car uses 15 L of fuel per 100 kms
    it might use 20 L of gas

    would still be interesting on how much the quote would be.

    i just got qouted for a factory one for my vx holden berlina 5.7L fuel injection system was going to cost me $4200, which in a couple of weeks ill be getting, which yeah, wish the systems these days u would not loose if any power at all.

    this duel system im getting if i decided to put my foot down and the rpm hits a certain point it will switch to petrol then when its back under that limit it will switch back to petrol.

    also when i booked mine in a guy with his 5.7L monaro is getting the same system as me in his car, but he's getting it done before me.
