I done it in a 4.8 on LPG towing a camper trailer for four nights five days and had no problem I had two extra Jerry cans full and used both but still had half a tank off gas to go when I got back to rainbow beach travelled around a fair bit to fuel is available on the island but not gas fairly expensive though

Have the same car, and the lack of LPG on all the islands is one of the reasons i didnt bother getting it fitted, because it takes away your main petrol tank in most installs.


You may be OK for fuel if you don't drive around too much, we did over 1000Ks in a week sight seeing Fraser Island, its a big place, Petrol is easy to find on the island and was about 40c more per Litre than normal.


Also remember, the maximum extra fuel you are "supposed" to be allowed to take on the car ferry (in drums/jerrys) is 40L ;)

Remember to fill up/top up with LPG at rainbow beach BP and you'll be fine!!

Done it heaps of times with no dramas and some left afterwards..

Yep we did Fraser at Xmas time for 6 nights in our 4.8 GU on lpg with only the small sub tank. We just filled up the sub tank when we could and took a couple of jerry's for back up. Like everyone else just kept some gas in the tank for just in case.

Also had the V8 GQ so we paid some cash to the fuel stations on the island... Small price to pay for the fun we had!!
