Converting a Ford Fairmont to LPG
Asked by Steve Crouch
I would like to convert my 1994 six-cylinder ED Ford Fairmont ED Auto to dual-fuel LPG, but I've heard that there are different types of systems, injection and so on, that you can use. Which one would you recommend?
Answered by CarsGuide5 Aug 2010
An air valve system that works much like a carburetor was the system that would have been used back in the 1990's when your car was built and that would be the cheapest system to use if cost is your priority. These systems were fitted to millions of cars over many years and performed well. Injection systems are the alternative and these drive and perform better than the old air valve ones, but they're quite a bit more expensive. I would choose an injection system for the performance and drivability, but go for the air valve if you want a more affordable system.
