Default Conversion Kit to Natural Gas?

Has anyone heard of a conversion kit to Natural Gas for the 4.6L disco II. It would be great to pay about 60 cents pre-gallon cross over cost and burn cleaner.

I have a couple of contacts that a friend passed along to me here in the area for conversions. I'm contacting them to see if they can do anything. If they're legitimate and have valid input for Land Rovers, I'll be sure to post it up here.

The biggest problem is getting the ECU set up to handle the gas, and I am not sure anyone has come up with a program that will work.

If you wont look on AULRO (Australian Land Rover Owners) site big threads on LPG conversions and efficiency is about 80% of Petrol

Cost here in Australia is around $4000 to $5000 with options as to storage tanks and retaining petrol tanks.

The problem with Natural Gas is filling it. The only way to get any range is to have a liquid gas. This means a filling station of some sort. They don't exist at this stage except at some truck depots that may be using it. For CNG (compressed natural gas) you can buy a home filling station that uses the gas going to your house. However, the filling equipment is expensive as because it is only compressed and not liquified, you don't fit as much in and therefore the range is lousy.
