[DMCForum] Re: Passing Gas (LP)

No difference between LP engine and gasoline except the carb, and a
bunch of tanks in the trunk.

I was going to make an adapter plate for my new carb this weekend.
Perhaps I should swing by the Blue Rhino stand at Home Depot instead...

Adapter is necessary because of original bizarre Volvo engineering
BTW, not LP setup. Manifold is cast for a proprietary elbow shaped
spacer (Volvo carb sits at 45 degree angle). Has a huge open cavity
underneath for a "heating chamber" -- fortunately came with a plate to
block it off. Volvo also ran coolant through a pre-heater flange on
the other side of the carb. Exactly how cold does it get in Sweden anyway?
