    Very interesting job hmmmmmm yes propane is easy to find in Canada. I live in a town of 3300 people and we have a fill station they are every wheremight be an idea for the subaru.Looks like you even have room to build brackets at each end of the tank to place a spare on each end?My problem is living in the middle of no where it takes me a tank of fuel to drive to calgary and back,but i was under the truck the other day and thought about a second fuel tank on the drivers side it would fit but lose about 2" or3" ground clearance not bad as i do not off road .has anyone tried this?Just one question tho in Canada a propane system must be certified would this be an issue?

    Nope, put the system in, then go to any shop that installs prop. systems and have them give it the once over (almost a vitual guar. that they will want to change something just to make a little money off of you). Once they are happy with the install they will put that lovely little orange sticker on your windshield to make it all legal.

    we use the forklift tanks simply because there are no fill stations... i keep about 10 of these because i use them on my rock crawler w/ a 454 in it... if stations were available, then i would look into a larger more permanent alternative, which im sure is very available in your area...

    Will the kit work on a db51t? If so, where do I get one?

    so here is what a kit minus brackets looks like... everything assembled, ready to bolt on, everything needed is included... this customer was going to build brackets for his tank to go under the bed so there is no need for the bulkhead to go through the floor, just a solid hose from the tank to the vaporizer...

    in Sask the propane system need inspection every 5 years. if you go to fill up and do not have the silver safety sticker visible they will not fill you. Some get around this with the removable tanks.

    also i found the most PITA about propane was finding stations. there is only 2 co-ops in my town with propane. both WHINE to come fill me up every time i came there. Also in Regina not every 24hr station with propane can fill you because they need to have certified people on staff to use the propane station.. so one night i had to hot ball her home 200km on 1/4 tank!

    What's the CFM cap. of that mixer? Would it be able to feed a 1000cc at 7000rpm?

    Little Dumper, if you are serious about getting a good LPG system together, PM me and I can use some of my resources to get you what you need.

    Also, my truck is almost done, so we'll have to go for a little two truck parade around town

    Holly hell.

    Where in there did I say I want to SELL anything?

    I just so happen to know the local shops and local people/co-workers who have a good stock of LP components laying around, which they would gladly sell for cheap if it is for a project.

    I figured that helping Little Dumper out, getting him exactly what he wants, quickly and free of shipping hassles would be following the generally positive "Kei-truckin'" mood.

    Not everyone is out to make a buck off people who don't know how to build an LP system.

    To recap;
    I AM NOT A VENDOR ON THIS SITE AND AM IN NO WAY TRYING TO (UNDER)SELL ANY OF THE VENDORS.

    I know that they are few and far between, but everyone needs to remember that there are still decent, helpful people out there. As for Little Dumper, there happens to be one in his town.
