    Hi, I have just bought my first BMW.
    It's nothing fancy, it's a 318i R reg, but the nice thing about it is that it has been converted to LPG. It also has climate control - having previously ever owned one car with air-con, I won't fear the summer months so much now!
    I'm a service engineer and travel all over the UK, so the car seems idea. Even with it being a saloon, I can fit all my kit in.
    So hopefully I will have many miles of comfortable driving ^_^
    I'm gonna sing the doom song now!

    It's a Stako LPG tank, only downside is that it only holds 35 litres.

    I have been tinkering with a few UPS's recently, what makes do you service?

    As for your LPG setup I shoud imagine your tank is going to be around a 40 litre tank then. It's not going to get you too far! I have a 70 litre tank in the back of my E36 coupe and would like a bit more range! Thinking about it I actually have a spare 70 litre Stako tank at the moment that I was contemplating selling...

    Do you know what make the rest of your LPG kit is? I have got an old Tartarini setup in mine.

    Servicing, let's see...
    AEC, AEG, APC, Ares, Chloride, Emerson, IMV/GE Digital, Gammatronic, Liebert, MLA, MGE, Powerware, Powerlab, Silcon, Socomec, Tamini, Upsonic...
    And probably a few other dinosaurs I can't remember

    I don't know what the LPG set up is - I need to take it into a garage to get it inspected and a certificate issued, as it didn't come with one. Although would you be interested in selling your spare?

    UPS wise I have recently been tinkering with some APC units and a larger Chloride unit.

    I was intending to sell the tank with some other bits I have but if your interested I would sell just the tank to get it out the way. Basically I already have a LPG kit fitted to mine but bought a complete kit off Ebay to swap my front end kit with.

    If your after the tank send me a PM and we will sort something out.
