    Default Retrofitting LPG setup

    Hi everyone,

    Just wondering how hard it would be to retrofit an LPG system setup from a wrecker car to a running car?

    I know the tank would need to be new, but what about the rest of the system?

    My brother did this with a fairlane years ago. He didn't even bother with a new tank, just got one that had some years left in it. Seemed to work OK.

    Does LPG need to be installed by a certified installer? Just thinking on the insurance side of things.
