Hi All,

Was wondering if anyone has had a LPG conversion on their 3.0L TD? Is it recommended...do you loss much in power and performance? Is it worth the money? And...obviously you can still use both fuel types, so how do u select with one u want to use? Can you even do that? Sorry if that is an obvious question..!

Also...if anyone has done it and recommends it...where did u mount the gas tank?

Im hesitant to do the conversion, but could do with the savings on deisel costs, as the Patrol is a daily drive.

Thanks as always.

Boley!

You don't "convert" a Diesel to LPG you "inject it" with a system such as Dgas.

The engine always runs on Diesel and you choose straight Diesel or Diesel with LPG when you inject the LPG you get a large increase in Power and/or better economy.

Usually the LPG tank is placed underneath wherever it will fit often looks like a small Scuba tank

A couple of mates have it on 4.2's and they go like stink when on the Dgas... haven't seen it on a 3.0 Litre (not saying it can't be done just haven't seen it)

Not quiet true mate.
CNG public transport faces clean diesel roadblock — Gas Today — The magazine for Australia?s natural gas industry

My old man used to service busses in the 80-90's which were running straight lpg. They were extremely hungry from what I can remember and was not cost effective so they were changed back to Diesel. Their injector lines were double the size too from memory.

So while these days its the norm to inject gas into the intake as you have stated, technoligy is there to run on straight LPG/CNG but it's not cost effective.
