	LPG may have a higher flame temp, but it produces less energy that 
gas when a vehicle is converted. I had a '73 Dodge truck with a 318 C.I.D. 
engine that was set up as a dual fuel vehicle. LPG cost was much lower, but 
the energy and mileage was less as well. There was a noticeable difference in 
acceleration between the two, plus a gallon of LPG did not last quite as many 
miles. But, as I recall, the LPG was cheap enough at the time that it was 
cost effective to use.
