Hey guys new here I picked up a beaten up old taxi from a company that converts ex police cars into local taxi's for 400CND, it was a Florida car no body rot only surface rust on the floor boards, I put a new tranny in it and have been fixing it up ever since. I am 18 years old and I LOVE these cars and I am trying to learn more about the dual fuel system on my car I want to know every thing about the propane system on this car.

Have you driven your car very much since you've brought it home?

If so, how does its propane fuel economy compare with its gasoline economy?

Do have a photo of the propane switch inside the car?

What is your procedure for switching back and forth between fuels?

No I have not driven it on the streets only in parking lots so I know nothing of the propane fuel economy yet. To switch fuels its as simple as flicking this switch, Its a 3 way switch (Gas OFF Propane)
