Question Gas Conversion

I dont currently own a Falcon although it seems highly probable i will get an ED before years end. Only problem is, as a Uni student next year, i will be taking it to uni most days, about a 30 minute drive. This would shoot me in the foot as far as petrol costs go so I'm looking for a gas conversion.

So thats my story, now heres my problem.
The gas cylinder usually goes in the boot hard pressed against the rear seats. I would like to use this area for sub woofers and sub box. You know, fold the seats down and have the subs showing in the cabin area.... Are there any alternative places the gas cylinder can be placed?? Under the car? replace the fuel tank with a smaller on to make room for it under there??

Or will i be stuck with a car with out bass.

thanx for ur help......
Mikey

So the sub in that topic is between the gas tank and the back seats??
Is it in a box?? or not??

Thanks again.

Station wagons running duel fuel often have a cut down petrol tank, with a gas tank in the remaining space that the petrol tank used to occupy. It leaves about 30ish litres for each tank.


Perhaps something like this is available for sedans, and if not, perhaps it could be fabricated???

why not put your sub behind the gas tank, in the boot?

That's not strictly true, I've heard two systems where the subs are behind the gas tank in the boot (jbolger and bass crazy), and I can VERY confidently say that PLENTY of bass gets through to the cabin!!!

I've got a pioneer 12" 600w sub in my boot powered by a 400w V-net amp all set in the boot behind the gas tank and there is plenty of bass. Its not quite as punchy, but then I can always place the sub on the back seat. If its not enough, just make a setup like bass crazy....
