Hi Has anyone had any experance with converting the petrol engine to lpg.With the silly hike in road fund cost. the resale value of my 2005 car is only £4000 against a navara at a Nissan dealer,i think ill keep it till it drops.
so lpg is a way to offset the increase in running cost.

Hi 2500 man

LPG currently has cheap running costs but be wary. H.M.G. is strapped for cash and I suspect that nothing is sacred from tax increases (at the moment LPG is basically subsidised).

Also I understand conversion is quite pricey so you need to work out how quickly you'll get the initial outlay back before you actually save any money.

I guess it'll put the value of your car up somewhat though if LPG does stay cheap!

hi the conversion works out about £2000 .I could use the car for work and see the cost returned in about 1 year or so.

Hi Guys.
My XT is LPg too. The good news is that as far as i'm aware, the tax concessions for LPG fuel will remain in force for at least the next 3 years to come !
