Pinz 712 LPG Conversion

edited September 2016 in GENERAL
I've just acquired a Pinz 6x6 and one of the improvements I'm considering is an LPG Conversion.

Is this something people do? What is the mpg on Lpg? I have an ambulance body so where is the best place for the tank? the petrol tank has already been enlarged into the adjacent storage locker. Also does anybody know the current cost and a good person to do it?

I know I've snuck in quite a few questions here but any info would really be appreciated.

Many thanks.


  • Whilst it is certainly possible to do an LPG conversion, it would certainly be cheaper to fill the tank, but I wonder how much power the engine would produce when running on LPG?
    Pinzmeister is probably the best person to talk to. Hopefully he will read your post and respond soon.

    Thanks for the feedback. I assumed it would be a common mod. but obviously not. What mpg do you get on the road at cruising speed? Are there many Pinzgauers in the UK? Is there an English "workshop manual"? Sorry about all the questions :-)
  • I am definitely not the right person to answer your questions regarding Pinzgaures as I run a Haflinger called Lurch! Not a Pinz in sight at home... no space to put one even if I did want one!
    I am sure there is an "English" version workshop manual.

    Hi Triple7, As John says, Pinzmeister is the one to answer all your questions, we have two Pinzgauers on LPG,  he has also fitted LPG to other Pinzgauers, he has tried to reply to your postings but he is having problems with his computer at the moment, he will try again tonight and hope fully be able to post a reply.  Regards Pete
  • Hi Triple7, Pinzmeister is still having problems with hs computer so he has sent you an Email. Regards Pete
  • Thanks Pete, he emailed me yesterday but I am guessing he is still having problems As he hasn't replied to my email. Can I message you my mobile phone number to pass on to him? Cheers Rory

    Hi Triple7  Yes he still can't post messages on the Forum, he hasn't replied to you yet as he is finding a price for your LPG conversion, by all means message me your mobile number and I will pass it onto him, Its all ways better to talk than Email etc  Best Regards Pete
  • There is no real rush, I was actually more keen on getting the work shop Manuel. Is it available for download or just on cd? It would be handy to get that asap. I will send you my number but I'm probably going to be out of signal for a lot of today and tomorrow. Thanks Pete
