Re: LPG - Is it worth it
i have been running LPG on my daily driver (vauxhall Omega 2.5V6) for about 10k now.
don't regret it at all, and as for paying pump prices......sod that!!!
i pay 35ppl direct from a gas supplier, the local garage is charging 54.9ppl for autogas, the difference.....sweet naff all.
i noticed a mild difference in performance, but then the saving in my wallet more than makes up for that, the other thing we have noticed is that the oil is cleaner when we come to service it.
i get 300 miles out of a 70 litre tank, and i don't drive like an old woman either, i have the controller set so that the LPG kicks in when the car gets to 35c so it works out i use but a tenners worth of petrol a month
yes there is a loss in boot space, but again the car has a huge boot, losing that amount was no great shakes.
and the cost was £705 all in, it was a DIY kit, once i fitted it i then went and got it approved, pass with no issues, sent log book off and had it reclassified as dual fuel and i can drive through london safe in the knowledge that red ken cant charge me
if you do the mileage then i would say yes it is worth it, oh and try and find a local supplier of heating gas.....its the same stuff!!!!
