  • Gas

    Well.. i booked the pajero in for a gas conversion.... getting the "SGI gas injection" system as apposed to the normal system.

    people who have a gas conversion care to comment on how they are... running and maintenance wise

    I'll be keen to hear how it goes. Good luck with it.

      Hi Ray,
      I had gas put on my Paj over 3 years ago and have had no problems whatsoever with gas. I really never used petrol at all for over a year once and ran I out of gas, only to find the petrol had gone off, and the car ran like a pig until all the old fuel was used up, so you still need to run on fuel occasionally and keep so to keep replacing the old fuel .

      When I had the gas installed I put in an Upper cylinder lubrication kit as well. - My mechanic told me to use transmission oil instead of the marketed brand lubricants - same job less costly...

      You'll love pulling up at the servo from now on...

            To have gas put on my injected 3.0 litre V6 2.5 years ago came under $2000, so would be more expensive now. But don't forget about the Govt chipping in $ 2000 on a new gas unit... You have to pay up front and get the rebate back... But even if it cost $2500 now- with the rebate it's only cost you $500... Bargain..

            In Adelaide ( Hackam ) try Allmake gas - I've had 3 units put in by Allan over the years and never had one problem with any of them.. He's really good with gas tunes as well..

              I thought LPG was taboo on the v6 3 litre engines? I have an NJ and it is written in the vehicle handbook that the engines are not suitable for LPG. I have been told it is to do with heat not lubrication. Obviously ULP has no lubrication either.

                The heat from LPG ignition is a lot stonger then standard petrol. The standard valves and seals get "burnt" over time (it's hard to say how much time, some people might run on lpg for years and have no problems, some have problem in a few months).

                The best thing to do is replace your valves and valve seals with stonger units which will better handle the higher stress that LPG puts on them, though even after performing this you might still have a few running issues.
