I'm driving my Chevy G20 van on long road trips and I'm thinking about installing
an LPG tank to cut down on fueling costs.

As I understand the tanks will take a lot of room. I'd like to hear from anyone who's done it.

Hi Torgunfu, Welcome to the site!


I worked for a shop that had a Ford with a propane conversion. I am unsure as to a propane install on a fuel injected vehicle. The propane feeds into the top of the carb. Ours was a dual fuel unit, gasoline, or propane. Tank was in the bed, and it is not small.

Thanks, Wedgy.

I'd love to see photos of a van with LPG conversion. I'm looking for them on the net but haven't found any
so far. The tank takes so much room... I wonder if it is possible for it to be placed outside, under the floor.

I have two tanks under the floor on my 79 G30 they are torpedo style tanks and sit between the outer chassis rail and the rocker panels. Fitting required a little cutting to the strengthening plates that sit in the gap.
Have a look on this thread for photos.....

Oh and LPG can be done with fuel injected motors, they tend to be more expensive but also more advanced and efficient.
