Review: Nissan Murano (2005 – 2008)

Can I convert my Nissan Murano to LPG?

Is there any problem in converting my 2005 Nissan Murano 3.5L CVT to run on LPG? I have heard that the valve seats could wear prematurely - can this be avoided? If OK, what system would you recommend?
I don't recommend LPG conversions on engines with variable valve timing.
