Message from europe (Netherlands)
I did own several subaru's who are all converted to LPG.
the first was a MY1992 2.2 legacy (370.000 km then sold), the second a MY1998 2.0 forester (non turbo) (370.000 km also then sold), the one i drive now is a My2002 H6-3.0.
the first two had the brand "Vaille" onboard, the H6 3.0 has a (italian) Zavoli Aleisi N Zeta, system, this is a full sequential version (see picture)
the last system on onboard for 6 month's now (22000 km already)
although Subaru claims that such a system is impossible on a H6-3.0, we proved it is possible, without problems, afther 20.000 km there was no valvewear.
4 cylinder Subaru's have full garantee from Subaru if fitted with LPG, my former cars proved that with their mileage. with 4 cyl.. check and adjust your valves every 20/30.000 km, they did need that!
Stories, like other compresionratio? We never heard that one in Europe!
Almost all systems here are retrofitted systems, even those suplied bij Subaru from new. fitted on standard cars and engine's. I know of one exeption. The "newest" Forester has other valves fitted, when ordered from new, this is because valve adjusment is very difficult and expensive on these cars (don't know why, but it is).
hope this will help you
