Espace LPG MPG

Post by andycarter » 13 Oct 2008, 20:05

I'm considering buying an Espace...

Has anyone run one with an LPG conversion kit?

I'm interested in what sort of MPG you get to see how this compares with a diesel.

Thanks

It'll do slightly less mpg than a petrol one if my experience of LPG Jeeps is anything to go by..

But.... as LPG is about 60% the price of petrol.... who cares?

I'm pretty sure it won't be cheaper to run than a diesel - unless it's a troublesome diesel, but LPG conversions have problems of their own.

It used to cost me £30 of LPG to do the 210 miles home in my 4 litre Jeep. At the time that made it about the cost equivalent of 50mpg.

On petrol, it struggled to do 20mpg, 15 was more like it. Diesel Jeep Cherokees are so horrid that I'd rather be poor and have a petrol one if I was given a choice
