Blimey, I\'m running an Impco 305 on mine with a E Vapouriser.

Did something daft with the system over the cold snap and have only just fixed the issue. I plumber the vapouriser into the heater line, but didn\'t realise the heater had a vent. When I was turning the heater to cold it was freezing the vapouriser over, I\'ve just replubed a bypass pipe in so I can run the heater on cold !

Our RX8 has been running on gas since 57000 miles, now has 94000 on it with no issues. Did a comp test at the weekend and all looks good. It covered 35000 miles last year so was a cost effective move! It uses an egas 8 cylinder kit and a modified ECU. Phil

Lovely ! Where did they put the tank ? Is it a dual setup or pure gas ?

Hi Shaun, it\'s a dual setup. 50l tank in the boot. The reduction in boot space has not really caused an issue. Around 150 miles to a tank which means frequent refills but at around £30 to fill it\'s not a bad saving.

I run round with only 25lt usable tank, without the petrol setup at all !!! Get 100 mile range !

Makes long journeys interesting, did rotorstock last year in the 1st gen !
