    Had my 1.8 converted 2 years ago and loving it. Starts on petrol then 2 mins later turns to LPG automatically. getting about 8 miles to litre(but need a good service). If you do the figures cost for cost petrol to lpg getting 56 miles to the gallon(working on 56ppl for lpg against £1.12 for petrol)
