its come here, again, because support for the opinion that everything other than a TS engine, isn't Alfa Romeo, never materialised.

read the thread that wolf started and you'll get the jist of it...

I would consider LPG, however a kit costs around £1500 fitted.

I think you would need to do around 30,000 miles to break even (on a TS). For me that would be about 5 years, and by then the rest of the car will have rusted away.

:lol: It puts affordable fuel in my tank though.... It decreases mpg by around 10% (about 2 mpg in my case) but is currently around 30 cents per litre cheaper. I have to factor in the significant cost of a remap (£440) and bigger injectors (£400?). I'm waiting to hear back from another forum member before I do anything.
My old Sierra loved the stuff, I used to put in 10 litres of petrol and brim the tank with E85 and it ran perfectly.
