no. I used to have an AU sedan on gas (heap of junk by the way) and the value was in the boot the same as any other LPG cars I've seen.  Maybe the factory gas installs are different...

So we draw straws on who crawls under the burning car to isolate the LPG cylinder...

meh, or you could just tell us.

AU's should burn. I think they're one of the ugliest looking fords ever. the BA looks so much better. I wonder where the BA's isolation valve on LPG cars is?

Potentially 15.6 if you do the maths. We should al be able to deal with that though.

Read a study that said the fuel tank was more likely to explode on a car before the LPG tank...... just thought it was interesting (and do you think I can find the info again!)

Ahhh the mystery of Leadership :lol:
I think keeping you the dark is more fun.

Has an aside, I think it great the amount of people who have done the course & remember the teaching. Or at least that part :roll:
