    Hi Mine was done by:
    Logical Automotive near Northampton
    Gas Carb type
    2x100 litre tanks fitted inside the rear frame rails with two fillers
    Petrol tank dropped and reduced in length by about a third to enable the tanks to be fitted
    GM 8.1 vortec
    £3500.00

    Reasonable installation but expensive. :(

    Hi Olley a lot of the cost must be in modding the fuel tank did they chop your tank or fit a small one ??

    Got quoted £2200 by your people Tony.

    Mine needs a sequential one (is yours an injection engine?)

    On my jeep I am not going to have much control over the fuel when it starts.

    Apparently if its cold and not responding depress a small button on a gauge and that puts petrol in?

    Am I right?

    hi John
    yes mine is injection
    maybe thats why your quote was differant
    mine has a small button also next to the gauge so i can transfer from gas to petrol
    i always start on petrol and then when its up to normal running temp switch to gas
    this keeps the petrol system in good working order
