    Default LPG conversions

    as some know my cars a 2005 1.8.. tbh i like the car but its pretty gash on the juice 1.8 engine + tank + 20's = crap MPG.. so i was thinking about looking into a lpg conversion.. now the only problem i can see me having is my boot space..i need it as i have the little one does any one have pics of their tanks.. i know their are various tanks available to suit your needs but at the same time i dont ant a tank thats not gonna benefit me by having to fill up all the time..


    pro's and cons..?

    Sell me the 20's and you can have your flakes back

    In all honesty would you ever recover the costs of an LPG conversion, especially if you end up buying another car

    Buy a second hand 2.0T engine mpg will be slightly less but performance will be better... only kidding bud..

    On a serious note tho, LPG conversions if done correctly take about 3 years to return what you have spent on the conversion.

    MPG is slightly better but the fact that it is half the price of petrol just now has some merit.

    tbh bud I would advise against it m8, its really for people who have a thirsty car in which they would need to keep it for 3-4years, continue saving m8 and get another motor.
