LPG Conversion for 3.2

I'm sure it will have been asked before but has anyone actually done this to a Brera 3.2?
I've heard of an Italian system that you can switch on and off, i.e. on for day to day commuting etc then switch it off for 'fun times'!

Just get a 1750 if you're worried about fuel consumption.

If the system is set up right you wont need to switch off the LPG as should give you the same power as petrol. Also some systems allow you for top end power use both petrol and LPG at the same time, so like getting bigger injectors fitted, but will still have a good idle when just on LPG or petrol.

Had LPG fitted in both my Mustang and my Lexus RX

The modern systems work just as good as petrol and can even increase bhp

I used to run the mustang on LPG even when giving it the beans and never had any major issues with it, most of the modern systems allow you to choose to run on either and the switchover is very quick (a matter of a second or so at most) so you dont loose any power on the cruise etc..

If you do get it get a decent sized tank, as large as you can comfortably get into the space you want to put it in so you are not filling as much.

Also get it professionally fitted by a proper autogas installer.

It's not as economical as it once was (price has more than doubled in 3 years) but there are membership schemes which allow you to save about 20% or so on the cost but are a bit dodgy

hope that helps
