Having your sub anywhere near your LPG tank will result in harmonics in your engine that may cause your valves to 'dance' LOL.

OK, seriously, I had a sub in my EB2, with LPG. I mounted the sub on the rear shelf, but had to use a spacer to raise it so that it didn't hit the gas tank. You could mount the sub in an enclosure and just have it in the boot facing backwards - just turn the gain up a little to compensate.

I've had a 10" sub sitting in the side of my boot, running off a cheap amp, running on REALLY bad wire.
it still sounded alright through the LPG tank, it really makes no difference.

Mounting the sub in it's box on the drivers side facing the passenger side (where the jack is) will give you the best bass IMO when a gas tank is fitted. The amp, etc can be fixed to the side.

i agree with LTDHO, thats how i set it up in my boot, sounded pretty good for dodgy equipment
i'm planning on mounting the amp on a peice of MDF infront of the LPG tank, so basically you won't see the LPG tank at all, it'll be a piece of carpeted MDF blocking it with the amp attached.
