So I’ve had the 300ish hp TSI lpg converted about 10,000 miles ago.
£29 to fill lpg tank (53ppl) did 270 miles today on that tank.
Averages generally between 230and 255 miles depending how and where I drive.

Best mod ever!

Its something I'm thinking about but other stuff taking priorities at the minute.
How long will it take to pay for its self at that price/mileage do you know?

Mine was about 2k

At that mileage/time will take me about 14-18 months to recoup my money, then it’s cheapest medium van motoring ever.

tbh, I just couldn’t live with the costs of running a 21-22 mpg tsi. It was this or it went, I’m super glad I did it.

Are my calculations correct I’m saying it’s 22.7MPG @ £0.53/l?
Which, when compared to diesel prices, is brilliant.

Have you lost much space with the lpg tank?

Do you still have the normal petrol tank so you can run on that as per normal if there's no lpg around

Tank is where the spare wheel is so no reduced space.

runs on petrol as well, if lpg runs out it’s seemlessly switches over

I would say there’s 15% less power on lpg but if I fancy full power I just switch it on petrol then back when I’m done.

i was sceptical about it but it’s pretty awesome.

I guess when your starting point is 300hp, taking a 15% penalty by using LPG is quite bearable!! ;)

Might look into this as Im keeping mine long term, only issue is not many pumps around where I live. What do you do with spare wheel as its a pain having to keep that in the bus?

I don’t carry much day to day. Only get filled when I’m racing. So spare sits in the back.

I understand about fill ups, I’m lucky as I have 53pl and 63pl quite close.

IMO as a daily driver lpg was the only way to go.

I was 400 max miles on a tank of petrol.@ £128pl
(About £85 I think)
Now mine does 265 max on a tank of lpg.@ 53pl
(About £28 I think)
