LP Gas Injection in air intake hurt the PSD?

Hello from Oz...
Due to the high cost of fuel here, about $1.25 to $1.35 average now PER LITRE!!! Anyways, don't get me started raving... Ha! Anyways, a lot of people are talking about LP Gas injection boosting Torque and Mileage about 20%.

If this did not hurt the valve train or rings or pistons in the PSD, it could be a real fuel saver. Cost here equates to savings in only what 20-30,000 kilometres? From then on it is all cake? Al right, what is the downside... Marc, does it have a bad affect on the engine? Anyone else know why it is not more widely done? Do you guys not have automotive LPG at all the gas stations like we do here (at petrol servos)... Translation... Ha!

Seems like it might be a good idea, but if it were that good I cannot imagine why there are not more out there doing it??

Best Regards to all from Oz, (Australia) the Lone Ranger on the "Last Frontier"....
And yes, one of my Quarter Horses is named Silver... Ha!

POST SCRIPT: Automotive type LPG is cheap here, is it just that it is not cheap in the USA?

Awww, you Guys.... That is $1.25 to $1.35 PER LITRE!!!! Not gallon Marc...
Ha!

Any ways, that is why the interest in the LPG Autogas is it is notably cheaper... Pay back in under 50,000 kms somewhere... Then cake, if indeed it does not hurt the engine.. Also, 20% more torque? That would not be painful either... Ha!

Regards from Oz

If anybody know litres to gallon, our fuel might not be that much more than yours, as A$ is .70 of US$... Some one can do the sums$.

But Autogas is substantially cheaper like less than half... LR

So Marc, are there many there doing the LPG gas injection for the claimed 20-25% better mileage? Or is the LPG just too expensive or hard to get to bother? Here it is at most Servos, (gas stations), and some commercial trucking is giving it a try.... What is it like over there?

Best Regards from Oz...
