Your gas is 70cents a litre? :S i work at a servo here in adel and when i finished work it was 49.3cents a litre, when the s8000 was $1.52\L seriously mate gas is the way to go unless you wanna spend $100 a time filling up with s8000

cheap fuel, and helps clear emissions issues at the same time, and you should make more power converting to gas.. why is this a bad thing??

Dosn't gas have a higher octane rating than petrol? Therefore you could use more compression/boost/timing and make more power as Morgz said.

depends how complicaqted your ignition system is.i dont actually know how the ignition is actually controlled on a vl but on a car that has the ignition controlled from purely inside the dizzy, all you do is plumb boost to the other side of the diaphram(using a simple convertor)and use a gas research carby in blow through style.most of the info is on the gas research web site.
