    With the government intent on shafting motorists with petrol prices want to look into the pros and cons of getting lpg conversion done perhaps

    does it affect the performance in any way? with it being half the price of petrol it looks tempting!!

    thanks

    The LPG conversion will cost as much as the car is worth mate. You are better off taking the cost of the car and the cost of the LPG system and buying something more economical, or another car with LPG already been installed.

    As for the feel. Our V8 Disco 2 had it. It felt quicker with gas to be honest. Have driven my friends Subaru Outlander (?) and that has LPG and that feels exactly the same when off and on it.

    Depends on how long you are going to keep the car-If longer than I would say 2 years then it will pay for itself but less than that and its probably not worth doing.A decent conversion I would think costs in the region of £2K

    For 2-3 years I wouldn't bother. Try doing a search on here as there should be plenty of information on here about it. I should imagine a decent conversion on yours can be done for £1500. Try looking at a Romano system.

    For 2 years i would do it and save a fortune as i do 800-1000 miles per WEEK but it may not be worth it if you dont do big milage. It is half the price of unleaded though so wouldnt take too long to make back £1500 instalation cost...and when u sell her shes worth more BONUS
