Just spoke the local company again. This is what he said about the power loss "The gas pipe goes inside the air inlet pipe which means it can only draw 80% of the air it could previously. Giving a 20% loss in power. You may not feel this in the lower revs but once you are carrying weight and try to go up a hill you will notice a big difference if you switch back to petrol as you are going up it."

Ok Thanks. Gasure or Elite it is then.

Where does the gas filler go? I'm going to get the tank that goes in the spare wheel carrier.

I would discuss with Steve where you can put a tank in a westy.
obviously you want the maximum cheaper fuel quantity possible

The people i've seen with the spare wheel tank, seem to have the filler on the front wing. I think on westy's you can fit a tank under the bed?
