i m looking for a torqueir motor tha s the reason why i want more cc...furthermore with lpg you loose 10%power and torque .. i need a more responsive engine down low . the reason why i fitted lpg is partly to reduce fuel expense and in italy where i live we also pay less for road tax ..if you are a gear head like me you should also know that lpg has between 105 to 108 octane rating so if you increase your engine c.r. you get more torque and better fuel economy cos you don t need to downshift so much on the hills

How much are you paying for a litre of unleaded. We are paying $1.45 per litre here and i have tuned my 347 to run on 93 octane. LPG here is 70 cents per litre but i dont think it is rated at 103.

we pay between 1.92 to 2. euro for 95 0ctane unleaded.2.12 for 100 octane shell v power.and over0.92 cents for lpg..the octane rating on lpg depends on the amount of propane it contains...
