Re: Newbies to Short Bus... please help!
Yep... have to agree with most everyone above. -- LPG is romantically green, and romantically virtuous, and romantically alluring....
... but I'm afraid the practicality of it is just not here...yet.
Maybe if T.Boone Pickens' outcall to his troops will *ever* gain some inroads... then we *might* see some improvements in availability of filling locations across the nation. But it just ain't happen'n yet. ~ Sorry.
The rig you show looks like a nice find. Albeit rather pricey (as every else also agrees). Do quite a bit more shopping around..I'm sure you'll find considerably better value propositions without too much effort in either gas or diesel versions.
..just my 2 cents worth.
FWIW-- I personally have a 2001 Eldorado E350 7.3L diesel with 168K on it. --Picked it up about 2 months ago. I gave $5K for it ~~ BUT it has no rust, leaks, or damage at all. It also has 6 nearly new Michelin tires and a fresh tranny, fresh brakes, refurbished a/c, and several other things like front end parts etc. all of which are new or nearly new (obviously well maintained).
