    Default Propane Injection Pics

    Does anyone have pictures of thier propane setups. I know a few people have done it, I'd like to see what it looks like so I know how much I would be biting off.

    I wasnt sure if anyone really wanted to see pics of a propane system. sho seems to be alot of naysayers and skeptics. but where would we be without people like myself to just try something and see if it works. I will try and take some pics tomorrow and post them.

    Here are the pics of of the propane kit installed on my truck. The only pic that wasnt taken was the lovely 20# propane tank in the back of the truck that anyone that owns a propane grill can see.

    Thanks. Thats exactly what I wanted to see. Just kinda curious on how other people had mounted and run the coolant through the regulator.

    Nice set-up! How's your mileage been averaging out now that you have been running it a bit longer?

    My mileage is still in the upper 18s. 19s if i can keep my foot out of it, but the power increase is hard to keep bottled up if you know what i mean. And i am still saving about $15 per tank. Doesnt seem like much but like i said before more power and better mileage and i am still saving money. What more could you ask for.

    $15 per tank is nothing to sneeze at, especially if you multiply it by the number of fill ups over the year. More power and money saved is always a plus!
