thanks driveit!

yep its propane set on it.
here they call it LPG (Liquefied Petroleum Gas also propane)

its a two way setup it runs on propane and regular gas
this my daily driver and the fuel prices in holland are terrifying.
1 L of regular gas is 1,79 euro thats around 2.33 us dollar
1 L of propane is 0.76 in us dollar that is 0.99

thats way the setup i do not have i big wallet Shocked

I wish gas was only$2.33 a gallon.  I just paid $3.25 a gallon and thought that was a good deal. Never mind, I just realised you gas is measured in liters.Embarassed

I see you do have a later, EGR equipped motor - probably a 74-79.

And yeah, those were kind of weak, especially the 75 and up motors.

BUT - new pistons, better cam and intake, recalibrate the Q-Jet and it'll act like a completely new motor. Promise.

My 73 originally came with EGR.
