I have seen a few 3500's around Adelaide running on LPG. Never seen a 2000
on LPG. As far a pricing of LPG beaware that the money hungry government
intends to start putting fuel excise on LPG from 2012 I believe, they have
already rolled that date back once already, which may change pricing and
economics of it. Perhaps contact the Rover club of SA for more information
about getting a conversion done.
