    I run a dedicated gas falcon RTV ute and have had no issues finding LPG although suburban servos are definitely removing their LPG equipment as real estate, compliance or recertification issues force re-evaluation of their use.
    Price has been stable over the last 18 months or so in my area at about 60 - 65 cents per litre.
    The bowsers on the Hume Highway generally have a vehicle filling with gas when I pull up so there is still a demand there.

    I remember a "gas only" Falcon Pilot Vehicle going up to Mount Keith to escort a wide load (dump truck) back to Perth a while back. Couldn't get LPG anywhere north of Kalgoorlie. Apparently Leonora normally does carry LPG, but they had run out. None available in either Menzies or Leinster.

    Falcon Pilot vehicle ended up travelling home to Perth in the tub of the dump truck it was supposed to be escorting, and they used a site Landcruiser with bodgied up oversize sign and flashing lights to escort the load.

    That certainly allows you to a long way between fill ups Pedro!

    Where did you get the 45l petrol tank from?

    Brown Davis used to make the best auxiliary tanks suit LPG, around 50 litres I believe for a D2. They no longer list any on their website but you could try contacting them. They still list a 55 litre auxiliary tank connected to their 140 litre main tank replacement.

    I had them under my D1,one each side with the original petrol tank still in place.It was expensive to get it fitted,a couple of grand but LPG at the time was worth 55c per litre. Pat

    Nah mate, he's got a D2, not a D4.
    Unless otherwise stated, this post is the opinion of Mick_Marsh and should be read accordingly.

    D2: 2750-2075 = 675kg

    D4: 3240-2588 = 652kg

    Not a significant difference... Is LPG Availability Dwindling?
