hehe speaking of diesel... anyone with an LPG dual fuel set up could run diesel run the LPG until the engine is warm and then switch over to have the diesel running

1990 EA Falcon GL on gas. Poineer MP3 Deck with Alpine 5.25" 2 ways and $9 6x9s. FPV seat covers and floor mats... they add 10kW at the rear wheels!

Coming Mods: Multipoint Fuel, 5spd conversion.
