    03 NP 3.5l Auto. Around Town (Toowoomba - very hilly 22l/100km)
    Driving to work 60% highway 40% town 17l/100km
    flat highway with light load 15l/100km.

    Impco mixer system.

    I find the economy seems to vary according to the state of fill in the tank. I always get better figures on a full fill from empty than filling a half full tank. That warrants investigation I think - could be a converter issue.

    I've had the conversion for over 60000km - only run on petrol if I run out of gas - and for one day a month (when I think of it) to keep the petrol system in reasonable health.

        I have a NL pajero and get simliar figures to "linou"... but towing is a different story.. if you use about 20lt petrol... expect about 24/25 for gas.. (Was towing a dual axel, 20ft caravan)
        Of course it can get worse or better due to winds or hills etc

            One other thing i have found since converting to Gas... where you fill up, or if it's hot or cold can make a difference to how much you can fill your tank... this of course makes it's difficult to know excactly what k's you are really getting.

              yeh i have noticed the same thing , also i have notice that if i get gas from caltex it seems to go nowhere . i had a conversion done ( injected) and there was replacement part used because the quality of gas is @#$% here in w.a , not sure elsewhere .
