Has anyone ever used this company?? they quoted me $6800 for my 2004 ford excursion to be converted to propane injected system. Just trying to get some reviews. Mine is a V10 gas engine, if you have had yours done, who did you use??
Well... Nice website
I work for one of the biggest Propane equipment Distributors in the US and this is the first I have heard of them. That does not really mean anything bad though they may be new. Ask for references and what type of equipment they use.
I don't know about the company, but that price seems stunningly high. Is there that much price advantage to running propane? Even if it was 20% cheaper than gas on a 'miles per dollar' basis, it seems like it would take many years to just pay off the conversion.
i was looking into a propane dual fuel conversion for my daily driver mustang, its an 05 with the 4.6 and there is a canadian company that quoted just under 6 grand instaled.
i also looked at gotpropane.com for my 64 f100 and they claim to have at least as much power from propane and better drivability but that was over a carburated engine. i'm still rebuilding the 100 but propane fuel is looking really good espically since it has higher octane about 110 and is injected as a gas.
Although $6800 might seem high, it is actually very reasonable these days. There is a lot involved with a good, reliable conversion on a new FI vehicle. For example, the Rousch F150 propane conversion costs over $10,000 and it is dedicated (meaning you can only and always use propane). Bi-fuel (propane or gasoline) really makes more sense for most. And you certainly don't want a conversion that screws up your truck!
Midwest Alternative Fuels is a new company, but I know that the owner has a background with a local propane supplier and has done extensive training. And, he uses good components and programming.
