“56p -61p a litre!!!!”

published 19/09/2008

ProCheap fuel, reliable, good for the enviroment

ConsTakes up some space, only 1200 filling stations

How would you like to pay 1995 prices again for your fuel? That is between 56p - 61p a litre! Too good to true? A gimmick? Not so, it's even encouraged by the Government. There is no catch, if you want to pay these prices, consider having your car converted to run on LPG. What is LPG? LPG is...

ConsSee opinion

~ ~ With the unbelievably high cost of both petrol and diesel in Britain today, it is surprising that more people are not opting for the option of converting their cars to run on Liquid Petroleum Gas. This has been a popular alternative here in the Republic of Ireland for many years, and I...

ConsAvailability in some areas

I have a 1999 Hyundai Coupe 2.0 SE which I had converted to LPG around two years ago. The coupe was not particularly thirsty petrol wise, however as I did around 20,000 miles a year I decided that converting to LPG would save me a considerable sum of money. The LPG tank is a 65 litre 'doughnut'...

I have fitted a Romano System N SGI system to my Omega 2.6 V6, it can off a previous car which had issues. I will cover day to day first. The car starts on petrol then switches to gas when ready, the switch also allows petrol usage as desired. The car is a tiny bit slower than on petrol and a bit...

I have been running on LPG for a little over five years now, and covered a shade under 220,000 miles in two cars. The first car was a Honda Accord 2.2 Coupe that had 65,000 miles on the clock when I had it converted to gas. Used was a cheap and basic OMVL kit. This basically converted an...

ProLow cost

ConsMany in the long run

Although I never had a converted (or already installed) LPG system vehicle, I had done a very thorough research on users for a decision if I should convert as well or not. In Turkiye (most of you call it Turkey) almost all the taxi cabs and most of the municipal busses are equipped with LPG. As...

ProLow cost fuel, cleaner engine,cheaper tax

ConsNone so far

I purchased a BMW X5 4.4 6 months ago and had the conversion done a week later. The conversion was priced at £2300, whilst it was the most expensive quote I had been given, the person came with a glowing referal so I went ahead. A doughnut shaped tank which holds 60 litres of gas was fitted, this...

If any people are fed up with petrol prices I suggest having your car converted to run on Liquid Petroleum Gas (LPG)for short.If the car is less than 1 year old you may possibly qualify for a grant from the POWERSHIFT scheme which is a government scheme which pays a percentage of the cost of...

I had my 1.6 Vauxhall converted 9,000 miles/6 months ago. It runs fine on the motorway but is not as responsive as petrol at lower speeds. LPG has 80% of the energy of petrol so you get less MPG. The most I have managed is 33 mpg - and that is driving 'economically'. It cost £900 to convert. Should take me about 20k miles to recoup the cost (taking into account lower mpg and the price difference), so about a years motoring. You will hear people who say the car runs the same on LPG as it does on petrol - the truth is it doesn't. The engine is designed to run on petrol not LPG and LPG doesn't have the same punch. Go 4 it.

I converted my Toyota Yaris Verso to LPG in 2009, and have since driven about 35,000 miles. Conversion took around 2 days and I was issued with a glossy guarantee document from the fitter. Driving the car on gas was no different from driving on petrol, though top speed was down by around 5 mph...

Well I took the decision to convert my 2 cars over to LPG when petrol hit £1.15! The savings were obvious and with a LPG distributor selling the stuff at 48p per litre I have been quids in since it was done. I have saved £95 a month in the first month and the car is running great on it. I liked it so much I wrote a blog about it to let people find out more. Its here http://www.lpgguru.co.uk/ If You find it helpful leave me a comment ! Good luck on your conversion Its been great for me and I am very happy.

As with all things you get what you pay for. But doesn't it defeat the object by fitting an expensive LPG system when trying to save money? Well in short, probably no. Fuel Savings per year are around half with average fuel usage around £50 per week yearly savings average £1300, this combined...
