  • Holden Rodeo 2006: LPG fuel economy?

    There are a number of LPG systems available for diesels, but they’re different from those we’re used to on petrol engines. In the case of the diesel system an amount of LPG is substituted for diesel, the engine never runs on LPG alone, and the effect of that is to increase power. The idea is then that you back off the throttle and save on fuel, but some people make full use of the extra power and can suffer engine failures as a result. I would urge caution and certainly urge you to talk to other owners who have done the same conversion you are considering to get their experience. It’s also crucial to have an experienced installer do the work on your car.

  • Holden Rodeo 2006: Conflicting advice over gas conversion

    Holden cancelled its LPG development program on the Alloytec engine in the Rodeo when it couldn’t make the valves and valve seats of the standard engine live long enough on gas. While Holden uses the Alloytec engine in its dual-fuel Commodore it’s fitted with hardened valve seats and valves in that car, but for reasons only known to Holden it couldn’t or wouldn’t fit the dual-fuel engine in the Rodeo. Talk to an LPG specialist about the conversion as some claim they can do it quite successfully, but approach it with caution.
