Not sure about the mileage (I haven't ever had an LPG vehicle), but have you seen the cost? It is about half the cost of petrol.

They get a little less mpg. I used to get about 15% less mpg on LPG in my Jeep Cherokee than I did on petrol. Still well worth it though. It was cheaper to run than, in a weird coindicndence with the OP, our petrol 1.8 Xantia we had at the same time.

Hell yes, my mate had an Impreza running on LPG. It ran massive boost and was running around 390bhp.

My XM 2.0 TCT went as low as 15 mpg on LPG. I sold it and bought my 2.1 SED XM. Runs on veg/bio mix. New veg oil is currently under £14 for 20 ltrs at the wholesalers. It's not as fast but I don't have to keep the spare wheel in the boot - the tank was under slung. I would rather like a 3.0 XM with LPG tho.

Find a better insurer. Most of them don't care as long as you've got the installation certificate.

I run a Xantia 3.0 V6 auto on LPG, the car runs exceptionally well, I am currently in the process of having a Peugeot 407 converted, the Xantia on petrol gives me a return of about 25 mpg, here as the gas equates to 47.8 mpg if you equate pound for pound.

I have a 90 litre tank in the boot, and you have to allow a percentage of space for gas expansion, I can get about 75 litres in mine. I allow the car to do about 300 miles between top ups, but I have had upwards of 350 miles out of a tank.

Insurance wise, I have no problem with insurance, I use a company called Chris Knott and they have been fine.

I phoned back the insurance. It wasnt one there computer. I didnt say anything this time. About it being lpg. So i can insure the car. If its all one the v5. Would the car be classed as standard. So that if i did make a clam. I would still be covered. Last time i told them it was lpg they said no. This time i didnt and i could go with it.
