also putting the focus on a dyno start of november to show the difference in power between lpg and petrol ;-)

Gas 185 miles to a tank,
3/4 motorway and 1/4 town
27.98 mpg
£3.50 = 27.98 miles
Gas at 76.9 litre

Petrol 363 Miles to a tank
3/4 motorway and 1/4 town
36.57 mpg
£6.19 = 36.57 miles
Petrol at 135.9

divided by 4.55

my average mpg on gas with mixed driving is about 28-29 average but on the motor way upto 31mpg but town can hit aslow as 25-26. At the moment just running a tank of petrol to see what my miles per gallon is on standerd 95 octane petrol, so i can compare them, should have the petrol mpg by the end of next week. Gas worked out 3.45 for 28-29 miles ( which is a gallon of lpg )

Hi there can anybody tell me if there is an exaust upgrade for my car from any other model. I am currently rebuilding the engine after 152k and a cam pulley slip. any info would be greatly apreciated . :)




if you want a nice system that gives it abit of sound with out being stupidly loud , best one is a remus cat back exhaust system..... = http://www.remus65.co.uk/index.asp
also add a k&n induction kit with it and that wil sound sweet or another exhaust system i would go for would be a miltek cat back exhaust from http://www.pumaspeed.co.uk/

thanks for the reply , as to reagards to boot space i opted for the tank that fit in the spare wheel area so i could keep my boot space. Safety wise, the lpg tank is safer than you standard petrol tank on you car as its been made to take a good bang so its really tuff. As for wear and tear it's about the same as running on petrol, reason why other people find theres wearing out quicker as they have been mis lead information wise on how to protect there engine but the protection is mainly for ford engine and honda petrol engines as they have very soft valve seats which burn away easy. Thats slowed down greatly by running a flash lube system that feeds a lead additive into engine which you dont find in lpg .

I've had my lpg on for 30,000 miles now and have had no problems but still clueless to why i see people say they have burnt there valve seats out, my only conclusion to that is they are not running flash lube system
