Question about gas on my EA

When I got the car it was running on gas, I got a new fuel pump put in, but ever since then I always have problems with the gas, and now that my engine is stuffed and Im getting a recon engine Im just wondering should I hook the new one up 2 gas? or just petrol?
I get pretty much the same power out of it because its only centre point. but alot of ppl reakon those engines pack it in early running on gas, I dunno.....what does everyone reakon?

If you're getting it rebuilt, get it rebuilt for running on gas. This involves different valve gear and head gasket etc.

If I was you I would convert it to straight gas (GRA system) and get it totally set up for the one fuel where performance will increase a fair bit.

If it ain't broke don't fix it.
