Fitting LPG to a E series falcon

Hey guys, im a P' plater who wants to own a Falcon rather than a Hyundai Excel. Thing is i can afford fuel on an Excel ($30 a week) but not on a Falcon (More like 60 a week) SO...*takes a breath* if i get a Falcon, i want to fit it out with LPG so i can actually enjoy spinning the tires without worrying about my next stop to the bouser any suggestions guys?

By the way, the wheel spin bit was a joke, i dont wanto spart a row about reckless P platers!

Very good idea, i did exactly what SiX_iN_a_RoW said, i got an EF with Dual Fuel and have not regretted it at all, costs me about $30 to fill up the tank and i get approx 450 - 500km's of normal driving, deffinately worth it :D

My duel fuel V8 costs 8c/kilometre for fuel.

Can't work out exact mileage as I use petrol as well. It has been recommended to use 20L petrol a month to keep valves in good nick.
I'll do an "all gas" run soon and let ya know.

LPG rocks. Even after all the modifications, my EA still manages 400-450km city driving, and about 500km on the hwy from 62L of gas.

Also, for those of you who drive LPG cars.
While the car is running on LPG, does the cars fuel pump stay on?

As far as I know, the fuel pump stays on, just recirculates it.
I get 15.2L/100k's on gas in the V8

The factory fitted system on EF duel fuel- the fuel pump runs only every 15 minutes.And yes it is good economy with LPG.
