      Ted;
      The H2 systems will certainly help with the MPG on that 440. You have to use a stronger chemical mixture though, to get enough H to help the gas burner burn better. The last time I tried it I was getting a lot better results than the original Brown gas , but that was a couple of vehicles back and I haven't built a new wet cell converter,yet.

      Hey WOW! Andy, I guess I started some stuff on this thread. I'm sorry I missed the TV shortcut. I use U for you Y for why UR for your and so forth all the time. I surely wasn't trying to be anything but helpful when I brought that up. U do seem like ur together. I was interested because of that old El Camino I had. My other interest has been in the H2 systems that are being developed. My RV has a 440 and that has so far been too big for that type of system. That's why I bought it for was to mess around with that. However I've lost interest. Anyway this was a fun thread. Merry Christmas!
      Ted

      Sorry, I should have been more clear. TV=TransVan, not television. It will be outside, hung underneath the frame. They most certainly do vent, especially when they change temperature. Before they had overflow prevention values, I brought a propane tank into my (warm) garage one winter. I put it down and about 5 minutes later I heard a hissing noise. I turned around and was horrified to see it venting from the change in temperature. I had a space heater in that garage so that means an open flame and I grabbed the tank and threw it out the door as far as I could, then openned the main door to air it out. If I had left the garage, I wouldn't have noticed the venting and kaboom. That's probably why they went to the overflow prevention valves.

Do they in fact bleed off? I do know that I filled the one on my Allegro a few years ago and now it has lost a couple of needles on the gage. I do not use it and it is turned off.

You don't fill the tanks all the way since you want some vapor space in there, most tanks are designed to fill to about 80%. So 60 gallons water capacity rating will give me about 60 X .80 = 48 gallons of propane +/-. If I tune my engine to get about the same gas mileage, say 10 or 11 MPG, that will give me just over 480 miles range. I'd like to do the AlCan someday so I want long range tanks.
