Dual fuel or straight gas ?

If its dual drive it at least 10kms in one hit on petrol at least once a week.

Most people just switch to gas once its started, and wonder why its runs like **** when they run out of gas and have to use petrol. so giving it a decent run on petrol once a week will keep the motor clean and healthy for when you have to use the petrol. Also expect you economy on petrol to change you will use more petrol to get the same distance than you did before the gas conversion simple reason its one or the other not both.

i cant say i agree with you on the 'economy being worst on petrol than before' ive got duel fuel and i havent noticed any diff from before to after conversion.

Hi all got the gas fitted thought i would let u all know the fuel consumption 588km and used 70 ltrs of gas. if my maths is right thats 8.4 ltrs per 100klm and at 40.9 its saving me heaps. and no difference in power that i can notice

TBH, it sounds to good to be true. I have LPG and get around 13-14lts/100 in town.
