Double fuel

I am going to add GAS (GNC / GPL) to my "nice" Mercedes ML-320.
Is there a possibility to use this nice program with bi-fuel system?

Another system has it. I don't know how it make the calculations, because I didn't have a bi-fuel car yet.

Thank you

Cars that use two or more types of "fuel" make it difficult to compute meaningful "fuel-mileage" results.

Is any site doing this? IE, is anyone calculating fuel mileage results for vehicles that use gasoline, CNG, electricity, hydrogen or whatever else, in varying proportions, and that take all those data into consideration as part of their calculations?

The nest THU is the conversion...
I will add a different king of fuel, GLP and just include the price and usage..... I will be able to compare using one or another king of... and maybe it won't be very accurate....

Happy and recommendation for dual fuel

Hello friends!!!!
I can't be more happy after one month using GLP in my ML... is a BIG savings... maybe in 1 year I will recover everything, but if I go to Balcans this year, even soon I will go it.

Now, the configuration in my GLP System (Romano) is putting a little little bit of fuel when you PRESS the pedal... and always the GLP system start up in gasoline... then, I did so far 3000 km and I used about 20 liters of gasoline. I think I need about 10.000 km for using a complete fuel tank.... Of course, with a LONG ride (for example, Balcans, driving 1000 km/day the start up/off are fue (few time in fuel in the start up)) and in highyway I don't press so much, is a cruise speed, then the gasoline injection is "nothing".

but anyway... sometime, I will need to add gasoline to my vehicle but I want to record like "money used"but no in the calculation of MPG.. of course... because is very difficult, or even,. better, If I can in someday distribute the fill up of the gasoline between the last time with tn GLP could be amazing, but it will need a program modification in this web page.

Becuase, my first GLP was on June 30 fill up, and when I fill up again complety gasoline maybe next year, this cost and MPG must be distribute since the last gasoline fill up with all the GLP... but anyway.... how can I add a gasoline fill without modifying MPG?

Thank you

If a top up takes 40 litres and you get 10 km/litre add it in as an LPG top up for 400 km. It only needs to be a close guess.

Ummm interesting......
Please, re explain, english is not my main language.

Now in LPG I am doing like 7.0 km/lts....

For example, "tomorrow" with 108.000 km I will fill 40 litters of LPG and also, I will fill the gasoline (90 liters, for example) for first time in 1 year (or 9000 km... whatever)....

What will I put?

Thank you!!!!!!!

Just call it 130 litres of LPG. The one top up will be wrong, but the average should be more or less correct over the last year.

PErfect my friend. I understand it..... of course... I will call it like that and in the price, I will make a "average" calculation 40 liters of LPG at 0.6 and 90 liters of 95 at 1.2 = 1.01 /liter

I will do it TOGETHER, same station, same moment!
