Running gas is there really any benefit using something like Penrite HPR Gas (or is this just a marketing ploy)

LPG has different combustion by-products than petrol, so needs an oil with a different additive mix.

You also need one that is stable at the higher temperatures LPG creates in the engine. I use Penrite Gas 20W-60 in summer and Castrol Gas 15W-40 in winter.

Why not ask your local cabbie what he uses.

That's just my opinion.

HPR Gas is the proper stuff to use yes. Its good Australian oil and you shouldnt have any problems using in a straight gas or dual fuel car.

I have used BP Corse Plus for many years in my Gas only 351 Clevo (in an F100 that works hard), with absolutely no problems.
I understand that a lot of cabs use this. There may now be something better, but I am happy with the BP oil, which has never let me down.

What about filters

Any benefit in a K&N Oil filter, or is the standard ford pretty good.
Ryco?
