My Flathead runs with LPG

...last week I finished the LPG conversion on my 1958 German made 239 V8 Towing Truck. Two LPG Tanks, each about 100 liters. Cold Engine starts with LPG, needs no gasoline to warm up. Has a little bit less power, so I set ignition timing a few degrees earlyer.
The gasoline is about 1.53 Euro per Liter and the LPG 0.67 Euro at the moment.

well it's a flathead , and from what i've read they were designed to run on corn alchohol or such { what do ya know we all drive flex fuel vehicles but we get no credit !!!!!} and i swear if i p-ss-d in the tank of mine it'd run off of it ................ so what did you have to do to convert it ??????????

isnt anywhere here in springfield that i am aware of ,{ usually not aware of much anyway till i've had megadoses of caffeine ! }, but the alky content in the regular pump gas has went up in some places . it's hard to say as far as power as it is a flathead , not a whole lot of power to begin with , but i did notice before parking it for the repairs that my mileage had gotten worse . enough for me to notice easily .
