I've seen a few cars with LPG tanks here since the 80's pa.

so luma na pala ito? ano naman kya pros and cons nito. im sure it adds to the weight of the car lalo na medyo may kalakihan ang tanke  ::) and ano kya ang na trend papunta kaya talaga tyo dito? since sa ibang bansa eh hybrid cars naman pero sa taas din ng electricity natin malabong mag click ang hybrid sa atin.

I think nangyari na sa Brazil to kaso nagkaroon sila nang shortage sa sugar kaya tinigil ang paggamit nang methanol.

See you soon guys!!!

From what I know, the conversion kit costs from 50k-60k. It requires you also to place a separate 40-60L LPG tank in your trunk. It will also allow you to switch the kind of fuel to use with the press of a button in the dash.

The efficiency is supposed to be the same as how your regular car will react to regular unleaded fuel,  but LPG is half the price per liter. Power delivery on the low-RPM is practically the same. The high-RPM is sacrificed by at least 8-10%

Taxis are the ones that benefit most from it since they are the ones on the road very often, so bawi agad yun ginastos for the conversion kit, and they don't rev their engines to those high RPM level that much. For those who own private cars, saving might be realized in about 1.5-2 years pa.

Still, with fuel prices rising real quick, alternative sources becomes really interesting to consider :)

taxis sa malaysia ganito na rin, indeed matagal na sa neighboring countries natin, bakit now lang satin? d hell with those politicians who r supposed to look after the country's best interest, they protected the business interest of the gas companies instead.

sa NAIADSS near pioneer, it costs 28k only for an EFI 1.6cc engine. around 22k for carb.

still costly. and the news said LPG will hit 30petot per liter soon.
