With Propane you actually gain power, its cool, Propane is 110 octane and its better for the motor. theres way less carbon in LP so it doesnt carbon up the valves and its a green fuel since it doesnt emit as much Co2, carbon monoxide or hydrocarbons. CNG is cool but it doesnt quite have the power to burn ratio that LP has plus i work for a propane company so Propane is always readily at hand lol. The system is already installed on 2 of our companies vans (one 5.4L and one 4.6L) and we just bought a 2006 F-150 that the system is being installed right now. Ill deff keep everyone posted, just a matter of savin the money haha

once its converted i wont need to carry a full tank of gas all the time. Im hoping to get a 25-30 gallon tank so i should get the same range as a my gas tank.

^he will either have to find a propane shop or fill the smaller tank with regular gas....

are there kits out for most regular trucks? say a 97-03 f150 with 5.4?

If i do decide on a long trip i can fill both the gas tank and the Propane tank and the truck automatically switches so once on LP itll stay on it unless i turn it off, Once its empty itll auto switch back to gas until i fill the tank up again. They install a small little gauge on the dash to show the Propane level too so i can keep an eye on it. I'll def be posting pics of it once its finished

I dont personally have to buy anything because the company im taking it to will supply everything under the price which is just over $7000. Theyll supply all the hoses and fittings, ASME motorfuel tank, Vaporizer, the injector kit and the gauge for inside plus they fill it the first time so theres pressure in the system.

wow, a bit steep there. i guess how much you drive would determine if it is a worthwhile investment
