I know it is controversial, however I am just about to buy a v6 GTV. Whilst not an imediate concern, it would look to convert the car to LPG at some point to cope with the increasing fuel prices.
I have had lpg cars before and they are great, performance sometimes is decreased a bit but you can always swap back to petrol instantly if you want to really gun it. LPG is also better for the engine. Difference is you can use the loud pedal as often as you want and and get the same economy as a mondeo. I think a car is for using and I would rather have the option of twice as many enjoyable miles for the same money. Residuals don't bother me I normally buy nice cars and keep them for years.
I have seen a thread on here that mentions GTV conversion, mainly on the continent. What I need is some specifics to assist me. The usual gripes such as lack of lpg doesn't bother me I work next to morrisons where lpg is 57p a ltr. I don't need a boot as I have a van as a second car. I don't believe tax duty on lpg is going to rocket, as it hasn't caught on like the goverment thought. People were worrying about rising prices 5 yrs ago and nothing has really happened to change anything.
My questions are:
Has anyone converted a V6?
Do you use flash lube additive? or is the engine ok without?
How is the tank mounted in the boot and what size?
where are the injectors mounted on the inlet manifold?
Have you experienced any problems with your setup?
can i have some pictures of the tank mounting and the injector positioning.
Sorry I know my question is specific but the devil is in the detail and I don't think these are converted often and I would rather get some feed back from people who have been there and seen the problems.
The only other option I can see is stop eating or buy a twinny.I love the V6 sound too much
Any help is greatfully recieved.
