    I'd be interested to see your experiences. Will you go for the smaller donut tank in the spare wheel well?

    One thing I did notice is that the conversion management system was for Euro 4 whereas the Prius is Euro 5. I assume that won't cause any confusions with the emissions systems?

    LPG GAS alternative clean fuels you ...


    [​IMG]
    With exclusive and innovative system of high pressure to drive the engine of direct injection gasoline you like FSI, TFSI GDI or with full reimbursement from the first boot only with gas (LPG). The direct-injection system uses when you start the original installation of high pressure on the supply of petrol, so that it is already starting the process of self-spraying gas. The installation uses this function for the serial high-pressure pump and fuel injector orifices to be able to import gas directly into the ignition chamber. Only if the gas consumed completely or when using manual change is the power of the engine with gasoline. The installation is relatively easy, and have a very limited additional accessories for icom JTG HP-system. This way there is a harmonious integration of the system icom JTG gasoline. Starting on the first conversions in September 2009 for private cars.

    TOYOTA MIGHT COVER PARTS OF THE ENGINE THAT ARE NOT CONNECTED TO THE TOP PART OF THE ENGINE ... PARTS LIKE PISTONS AND CAMS DON'T GET COVERED BECAUSE THEY HAVE DIRECT CONTACT WITH THE LPG FUEL .. italy has 1000000 cars that have the conversion made !!! England 40000 australia 500000 the car makers sort of accept it because of the demand ... fuel economy is the same if anything regular gas gets better mileage by a small margin ... the point of LPG fuel is that the emission are drastically better and the price of a liter of lpg versus regular is huge!!!! 1.50euro as opposed to .60 cent

    Liquid propane has a density of about 0.49 compared to about 0.75 for gasoline.

    So expect a drop is mileage (miles per gallon of liquid propane) of about 35% (17 - 18 MPG) relative to your gasoline mileage.

    With the price difference you state, you'll still come out ahead, but be prepared for it, and expect less range.
