  1. Nissan Patrol GU/GR Y61
    was getting 560km from the main tank running 275/70R16's and now only getting 380km running 33/12.5R15's. Still have the 3.9 ratios which are a real pain as the rig struggles to sit on 100kph, revs are far too low at around 1600rpm cruising... I find the motor enjoys the revs up around 2000rpm...

    I know that LPG can be used for power instead of a bigger injection pump, but different companies installing LPG on diesels claim that it is also cheaper to run some amount of LPG.
