Thanks biggav

doing a BBM conversion shortly and have heard AU thermostat is better for LPG cars, as the thermostat itself is in a different location.
Is there any truth to that?

cheers

Most? - I think it was EA-ED with Climate Control.
Least? - AU which has the temp sensor in the back of the head.

Use the same type of lower thermostat housing that came off your engine, use the EF/EL/AU(?) upper thermostat housing.

Go with what you have, unless you are also updating to an AU engine. Then you can either go with what you have and leave a temp sensor in as a blocker, or change to one model newer...
