You'll probably be better off putting a wanted ad in the Marketplace.

Yeah that caper was such a scam , happened everywhere
I haven't had gas on a vehicle for years now & that's after having it on 5 previous cars.
I see now that gas is 86 c / l in Cbr now .
Gas will be done in a few years with diesels & hybrids becoming so popular.

LPG is redundant, no real savings, shorter engine life, extra maintenance and poor range, I believe they're trying to price it out of the market so people move away from it......just my opinion.

My understanding is that some petrol stations are removing the LPG pumps due to less patronage.

But my biggest reason for steering clear is my mechanic. He said 'LPG is for BBQ's, not engines'. The system in my old Falcon ran well, but I wouldn't convert the Pajero, not these days.
