Is it worth selling my aftermarket LPG System in my VX commodore? I do not use it on Gas at all because of the poor performance. If I were to sell it to a mechanic they would give me $100-$150 including uninstallation. Do you get much back on resale with duel fuel? Although petrol is around $1.35 and Gas is around 60 cents but I would rather pay the extra and have my car running as well as possible. Any opinions would be appreciated. Cheers

I got gas injection installed on my car last week and so far on it's first tank full it's done 340km from 46L of gas! It's so smooth and to be honest I think it runs smoother then petrol... Early days for me but yea I'd suggest getting someone to have a look at it, I'd recommend gas to anyone and everyone now without a doubt... Should have got it done ages ago!

not everyone can afford gas injection, yeah if mine was injected i would be happy, but realistically its not viable, you will be dead before you make the money back

Cost me $3200 :S... I was going for the standard mixer system but the bloke who I got it done by offered me gas injection for $200 more so naturally I said "Heck yessssss!"... About 6 months ago he quoted me $4500 for a gas injection system!

sounds like he did a good sales pitch by saying only 200more considering a mixer set up now days only costs 2grand, however i do agree $3200 is good for injection, its still alot more then $200 on top of a standard mixer setup now days

Everywhere I got quoted for standard mixer systems were 2700+... I wanted a donut tank as well which apparently costs a couple hundred more.

Maybe LPG conversion are cheaper down your way?

And yea that would be interesting to know as I'm sure it would be relatively easy and straight forward
