It is suitable for older cars and engines which have a carburetor and distributor [including generators and other standalone engines], and is a basic guide to the process of converting a petrol-fueled engine to run on gas.

Including; a list of tools needed, a short list of [inexpensive] parts needed to do your own gas conversion, and illustrations showing the position of the adaptations necessary and instructions on how to do them. The method outlined is cheap to perform and within the abilities of most who have some experience beyond emptying the ashtray and putting in oil. It doesn't lead you by the hand, but it does give step-by-step instructions, and, while all cars are different, the basic procedure is clearly outlined for you to follow. Although some may find it a bit 'belt and braces', preferring to buy a complete, tailor-made kit, for others, budget is everything. This is guaranteed the cheapest conversion method.
