Propane update wanted

just want to know from the people that was doing the propane swap

have you completed the swap and how is it running

also what is the proformance like. is it the same, better or worse

and what is your MPG like on one forklift 8gal tank

i have all the stuff collected to do the swap my carb is a 225 someone told me it was too big. it came from an in-line 6cyl forklift

just wanting to know if it is worth pulling the weber off and converting it over to propane

This link has lots of good information on sizing your mixer to your engine.

I am running propane on my 1.6 had it on my 1.3 also haven't burned up a whole tank yet but it runs awesome no more stinking exhaust fumes either . I bought a 225 mixer first also you will need a 100 mixer the 225 is too big . I didn't try it but looking at the cfm's it was way too much . The 100ca12 impco is what I have and a model J evap and a vff30 lock off . PM me if you have any questions.

Not sure about dual fuel but the 100 mixer is more than enough the 100 puts out 170cfm for a 1.6L you need 144cfm at 6000rpm most of the time your no where near 6000rpm so the 100 is more than plenty
