Yes! But, the inherent long term engine problems and lower power from LPG (despite the supposedly higher octane) - is the cost worth it?
Fuel here is NZ$2.20/litre for 95(ish if ya lucky) octane and NZ$2.35 for 98. That's about GBP1.20 and GBP1.25 /litre respectivley.
Not too bad in difference. Nobody will do an Alfa here as those donut shaped tanks are illegal. Has to be a bomb type in the boot or underneath. And....in NZ you DON'T want to be without a spare!!
I have friends in New Zealand, and it's a great place to live... But when it comes to LPG you are in the dark ages... aren't you? :-)
donut shaped tanks are illegal???????????????????
inherent long term engine problems ????
lower power ???
What kind of systems are you installing down there?
New Zealand (p/Litre)
Petrol 95 NZ$2.20 (€1,31)
Petrol 98 NZ$2.35 (€1,41)
Petrol 95 €1,54 (NZ$2,57 / £1,32)
Petrol 98 €1,61 (NZ$2,68 / £1,38)
LPG €0,66 (NZ$1,10 / £ 0,56)
For the sake of argument let's say that your car spends 1l every 10km each is a reasonable amount for a lively driving style.
This means for every 1km, €0,15 are going out the exhaust if your using Petrol 95.
So let's see:
Petrol 95 --- €0,15/km
Petrol 95 --- €0,16/km
LPG --- €0,06/km
If you run 20.000 per year:
Petrol 95 --- €3.000/year
Petrol 95 --- €3.200/year
LPG --- €1.200/year
With the extra €2.000 (NZ$3.300 / £1.700) in my pocket each year I can easily choose one of the following:
a) Go on vacation to New Zealand
b) Buy the latest apple products
c) if you leave in NZ... completely rebuild your engine from scratch!
