We are planning a trip in a dedicated LPG ford and just wanted to know if there are enough gas stations along the way between Sydney and Melbourne

Should be no problemo. Cairns to Broome might be a different story though. –  hippietrail Aug 31 '13 at 13:31
    
I reckon you'll be fine doing Cairns to Broome as well. Looking at the combination of BP's sites and Shell's sites there's a fairly regular spread and the ones I checked all had LPG. –  dlanod Dec 9 '13 at 0:51

You should be fine - people have done it in the past, even driving Melbourne to Gold Coast, with plenty of stops.

However, if you want to be certain, the Shell gas stations have an online Fuel finder site to locate the different types of stations, as well as iPhone and Android apps. And they're certainly not the only fuel company in Australia.

You will have absolutely no issues. By far the majority of Sydney and Melbourne petrol stations have LPG, especially the chains, so assuming your car has 400 kilometres range (600 km was not unreasonable five years ago) on a full tank minimum, you can make the following stops without even going out of your way:

+1. The Hume Highway is a major thoroughfare and even in the quieter middle stretches it's rarely more than 50 km between large branded petrol stations, which almost always sell LPG. –  jpatokal Dec 8 '13 at 23:24
