Running on gas the fuel evaporates why bother with gas if you want to run duel fuel get used to the extra maintenance which will eat up any savings you might get from gas*2 how far you drive the car ? Then theres the ignition curve issue whats it tuned for gas or petrol once gas goes thru the quaddie don't expect it to run well on petrol for very long. Save your self the trouble and throw the gas away if you must run gas get a gas throttle body and run dedicated gas, up the compression get the valves done up for gas and the distributor recurved to suit gas. Notice taxis don't use gas anymore either.

Whats wrong with Melbourne drug addicts sleeping all over the footpath trying to scab money?

I'll second that.
I've run two work vehicles on gas.
The money you save on the price of gas is lost because your gas consumption is always higher than fuel over the same distance.
Factor in price of the conversion and you will wear the vehicle out before you break even.

Old is good.

You all know that I work in the gas pipeline industry,
There is no way I would convert my old Holden to gas
The were and tear on parts and the cost of mantinance is just a waste of money, And yes Taxi don’t run it anymore ether,
Yes I looked into it around 10 years ago, it just wasn’t worth me doing it,
Yes it’s cheaper at the bowser but as mentioned above you lose gas on city driving or short runs, and that was told to me by a taxi driver in Brisbane when I asked him about it then
I used to have a sticker on one of my cars that said, “I like fossil fuel”

As I always say
Stay safe all
