    A few tanks have been removed here in Bundy but there is still 3 or 4 servos with LPG. We do however have "Bundy Hot Gas" who service the LPG scene including 4 driveway pumps.

    I'm still looking for a suitable ute and whilst I don't need gas on a running cost basis (about 5000 K's a year) LPG utes are a major part of the second hand ute market so including them gives a much larger pool of vehicles to look at. It's worth keeping in mind here in Victoria with compulsory RWC's on vehicle transfer a 10 year old LPG powered vehicle MUST have it's tank within test as part of the RWC check. For a typical Ford 'scuba tank' install the cost I've been quoted is about $400 - $500 for the re certification alone, so 'buyer beware' ALL BA, BF and early FG LPG powered Fords will need to have their tanks re certified. OK for dealer bought registered/roadworthy vehicles as this should have been done but in the private market a real trap for the unaware.

    I had the tanks on my dedicated gas BFII RTV ute done for rego last year. Was about $500.00 and that included couple of new fuel gauge senders. Pretty reasonable considering how much it costs to run.

    ten year inspection on the BF 11 wagon twin tank was much cheaper here in Newcastle.

    I had new fuel gauge sender replaced to make the gauge accurate and they painted surface rust on the tank and floor.

    My dad had to wait a week to get bulk LPG delivered to his poultry farm. They asked him what day he needed it and did it just in time. Im guessing from that there is a supply shortage.
