Simply post how many k's you get to a tank whether you have straight gas or duel fuel. Also post any annoyances you have from whichever you have or any problems you've had.

VN ex cop 5L
i get 420kms out of an 80ltr tank in my 5ltr high way driving and about 200kms of city driving(giving it a flogin)
the only prob i have with the lpg is when you punch it, it gets to about 4000rpm and looses power alltogether but thats not all the time
i think its leaning off when i hits high reves
im dyno tuning it on fir hopefully
btw i got dual fuel

Its kind of funny tho when you have a 55L tank and the bowser at the servo says you put in 60 litres... farken crooks.

if you find that sort of stuff is happening. dob them in. i know a bloke who was getting ripped with petrol so he got a jerry can full and took it home and messured it. he found that he payed for 2 litres more over 20 litres. he went back to the servo and made them get there pump re-calibrated. i know ya can't do that with gas but servo's like that should be dobbed in.
i think a lot of servo's these days are picking up quite a few $$$ here and there...

I did the calculations on my fuel consumption. I average between 12.5l - 13.5l per 100kms in my VP S1 wagon, 68 litre tank, that would roughly equate to around 470-520kms per tank. Not bad really.

I've never run it below 1/3 though, not since I've had it.

CAI, K&N filter, tyres at 36psi, 98ron every 4 weeks, standard 91ron the rest of the time.

i think u may find thats called fuel reserve mainly on calais but if i put 55 to 60 litres in my calais it pulls around 550 out a tank and around 500 in the city giving it a flogging but its real good straight ulp and a 6
