~ ~ 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 personally have had four vehicles of mine converted in this way.
~ ~ The second major benefit is that LPG is a far cleaner fuel than petrol or diesel, and there is hardly any damage to the environment caused by the emissions.
So if you value your lungs and the air you have to breath day in and day out, it makes sense to do your bit to stop pollution by having this conversion fitted.
~ ~ The old type conversions used to have a switch that you flicked to change over from petrol to gas, but the newer model kits now do this automatically.
The car starts up on petrol from cold, and once the engine temperature reaches a certain level, it changes over to the gas. You still have the option to override this if you prefer however.
~ ~ I believe that the UK Government are now also giving grants to encourage people to convert, but only on cars that are under a year old. This seems a bit shortsighted, to be honest, if they genuinely want to promote the use of this cheap and clean alternative fuel.
