1990 landcruiser vx dual fuel - any issues?

just looking at a dual fuel 1990 vx,
would lpg work out cheaper than a diesel to run? im guessing running on petrol would be thirsty but any issues running lpg the majority of the time?

anything to watch out for?

any info appreciated

cheers

Re: rugger

Parts are rear, the rugger usually has the 2.8dt but were badged rocky in ausi and fourtrak in uk. the rocky in nz usually has the smaller 1.6. The rugger also has the solid front and rear diffs.
