Yes, the probe is like one long metal stick about 12 to 15 inches long (not including the bit that sticks out) that goes INSIDE your exhaust.
Inside this long metal stick is twin double walled pipe (in and out) that you can't actually see because it just looks like a long metal rod.

I asked around a lot for other ideas on heating the gas but to no avail, though if it is any reassurance , this is what gassure use on their pro installs which made me decide it was the way to go

I don't have any pics unfortunatley

I thought I would mention, there are kit suppliers out their that will certify your kit after you have installed it, you just need to book it in and take it down to them and for 25 they will check and certify. I went to a different fitter for certification because my supplier was a bit to far away.

nice write up, i have lpg kits on my beetle and camper. one uses the little heat exchanger welded into the exhaust and the other is pre heated by engine oil. i personally prefer the exhaust method but the people who make the kit switched to the oil heated version as they think its safer, needs you to full flow your engine in some way though.

i wish id installed the kits myself now, although i wasnt quite as experienced at the time we had them fitted. they are so simple though and have really served me well. i would highly recommend using lpg on your aircooled to anyone!
