Re: Alfa LPG conversion ?
I looked into it. You can get a tank that goes in the boot or in the wheel well (the boot tank is obviously the bigger of the two) and all the doo-dahs under the bonnet and plumbing to feed the gas into the inlets etc.
There's a switch in the cab to turn it on, and a gas level gauge to tell you when you're running out.
Gas gives you more or less the same performance but slightly less mpg than petrol.. hardly serious when it's half the price.
You have to start the car on petrol, as gas won't combust enough to start a cold engine and apart from that, you need petrol in the tank to lube the fuel pump as that's obviously always running, even though you're not using the petrol.
Cost depends on how many pots you have and which tank you go for.. but budget circa £1500... You really need to do the miles or have a gas guzzler for the LPG conversion to pay for itself inside 2 years.
