    Re: Duel fuel back to petrol conundrum

    Yep run the tanks separate if its possible...... I'd still get a long range tank on the rear though, someone I know has one on his td42 and I'm pretty sure it doesnt sit as low as what Westy suggests, I won't get a look until next Friday though.
    My tank is actually only a 80 lt jobby and its a very lucky day indeed if I see 400 to the tank....... Most times its any where between 320 to 380 but obviously that depends on many factors...... They're a thirsty beast the tb42 but I didn't buy it coz it was frugal
    Don't stroke it, TAP it!!!!.....

    Haha... I agree on the frugality point. It's not my everyday hence I want to change it back to petrol.

    Clunk, if you do get a chance to have a look at your mates on fri, would you mind letting me know how low it sits?

    I'm currently on 31 kumhos atm and am getting about 300 per tank. Will this change dramatically when when I eventually go to 33's?

    No problem at all, will post up when I've got something for ya....... will try and get photos too if its not too dark.

    I must admit I never paid a a great deal of notice to fuel consumption when I was on 31s but from what I can tell there is a slight increase in consumption but how much difference, I think maybe the Max I ever got from a full tank on 31s was around the 420k mark but again, if I was lucky.

    Is there such a thing as RTI..... Repetitive Tapping Injury?????

    Thanks heaps clunk, look forward to it.

    I guess fuel consumption is what it is. More so just interested to see what happens and learn, so excuse the ignorance.

    Cheers, Dave

    You'll find the rear tank if thats the position of the 150 replacement main
    in angled to acheive max departure angle.
    Wouldn't be putting one in a rock hopper though.

    I would spend the grand on getting the gas fixed, sounds a lot easier than trying to work out what size petrol tank to fit *LMAO*

    What's wrong with the gas system anyway????, do you have a post up of that problem that I missed?

    Cheers

    Hahaha... yeah tell me about it.

    Nup, no post on LPG issue mate. Long story short, I've had issues with my gas the whole time I've had the car mainly because of cheap mixer and convertor. It's been worse since the snorkel went on. So rather than spend 800-1000 on impco gear and having it fitted,I thought if chuck the money towards converting it back to petrol.

    Cheers, dave
