Fairlane conversion

Asked by John E

I AM considering buying a late-model, six-cylinder BA Fairlane and converting it to gas or dual fuel. Were these cars originally available with factory-fitted gas? If not, was there a reason? Will Ford's factory conversion kit for the Falcon fit straight into the Fairlane and are there any problems to watch for?

FORD offered two engines in the BA Fairlane: the 182kW Barra six and the 5.4-litre V8. The E-gas engine wasn't offered, the only reason being Ford didn't believe there was enough demand. The factory E-gas system would fit the Fairlane, but would need the E-gas six as well and I think that would make it too expensive. Ford dealers have dual-fuel kits that would be better and more affordable. Lots of BA Falcon taxis run on LPG with no problems.
