havent seen anything like that yet.. only the 3.0L diesels
i think a gas to propane conversion would be pretty cool though.

A Hydrogen Fuel Cell Jeep would be awesome... put one of these in it... 250 HP @ ALL RPMS... because it's an electric motor hehe. None of that junk they put in normal electric cars I'm talking industrial S#!%!!!

the rancher next door to me has one in his F250 (gasoline) and he swears by it. Said it was the best $300 investment he's made. don't see why one wouldn't work on a jeep as well. i'll get around to it eventually.

You do not get better mileage from propane in fact it will be about 10 percent less per gallon. Propane is good if driving indoors, and having a carbed engine and wanting to hill climb. Other than that not much reason to add propane to your gas engine.

its cheaper than regular in my area, but other than that, i wouldnt use propane. But if it was used on a wheelin' rig, at least there there wouldnt be any gas sloshing around and spilling if it flipped.

Propane has a tendency to vapor-lock, well it did back in the nineties. It would lock then freeze forcing the user to sit and wait for it to unfreeze. I can get propane VEERRY cheap so if the technology has developed to eliminate vapor-lock and rpm's spikes I would run it all day errr day.

Hi I've been running on LPG for 400,000 miles or more and on several different systems. The one I have now is about the best I've had. It's called Romano. It gets the most out of the LPG by heating it super hot just before injecting it and the power loss is no longer an issue. I get about 20 mpg on LPG and it's less than half petrol price. I use a valve saver head and valve lube system from australia to stop valve recession. The only down side with lpg is very slow fuel fill ups and on my setup it fills the back as I have a 120 litre tank behind the seat. ( steal tank very strong and definitely more crash proof than a petrol tank) if I run out if LPG it beeps and changes to petrol. If I press hard on the accelerator pedal and make a higher power demand than the LPG can meet it seamlessly switches to petrol then back to LPG after.
