With the global rising cost of petrol has anyone on here thought of or know of someone who has had their cars fuel system changed over to a more cost efficient fuel such as LPG etc. This is what I've read about LPG. First the conversion is a pricey mod and you still need a petrol tank. You need a second tank for the lpg fuel. Around my area there are a fair few lpg gas pumps but they are thin on the ground in other areas. And there is the debate about a slight lack in the performance of LPG cars. I think the average cost of a conversion is around 1200 GBP -1500. So it's not a good investment if your not sure about how long you will have the car. But in my case I would like to keep it going as long as I can. I mean near my home here, someone has an old 1960s Austin wagon. It's kept un garaged on the road obviously has it's MOT as it would't be there otherwise, the paint is not shiny but it is totally as far as I can see rust free. So if I could keep my car going that long, having a conversion would pay off in the long run. The only thing about new eco fuels, is that sometime in the future when or if there are less petrol cars on the road, the government may raise the taxation on LPG and electric and hybid cars to make up the reduced revenue from regular petrol. I hope that won't happen, but it used to be here in the U.K. until 1997 that cars that get to the grand old age of 25 years old would be exempt from road tax. But they stopped that on all cars made after 1st January 1973. So the government may give incentives to cut the cost of fuel by buying a more eco friendly car, or converting your current cars fuel something like LPG but then there is always the chance they may change that. But If anyone has experience of converting to a cheaper fuel, I would be interested to hear about it whether it be a good or bad thing.

bro lpg and cng are both good alernatives to petrol i have 2 cars fitted wih cng its quite cheap in the long run but pricy when installing but gives a good average and is really cheap.th cars acclleration drops a bit but theres a catch you have to start the car on petrol if u constantly use gas then ur fuel pump will jam and your butterfly would be damaged which causes missing in the car when converting on petrol sorry for the long post

Yes the length of a reply is much appreciated as it is more comprehensive and the more detail the better. This after all is a great deal of money and a big decision when doing this type of conversion. But If the cars is being kept permanently It's worth doing as in the long run it will pay dividends. I've never heard of cng BTW.

and this is not good for the long run it eats the engine from inside if you constantly use it on gas the engine becomes dry so you have to drive a car minimum 5 kmh a day on petrol before converting to gas
