No, don't get LPG... it's crap!!!

( No... you can't look in my boot... :shock: )



Nah seriously, LPG is worth it!!

Trip from Penrith, to Forster and back on petrol: $155.00
Same trip on LPG: ~$65.00-$70.00

Your 4L car running cheaper than your Grandma's Festiva: PRICELESS!!

how many k's do u do?

everything needs to up to scratch when running on lpg....heads generally dont like it much...$$$

and ign sys needs to be tip top...more $

your car will NOT be cheaper than a festiva to run (maybe on fwy, not around the city)

around the city will use 18-19Lt/100 LPG...a festiva would use 8 petrol

still I run it...I just expect as much as i used to...and if petrol keeps coming down and LPG doesnt I may reconsider still running it....

the performance difference is very noticable when u put your foot down

gogetta ---

My car DOES run cheaper than my grandmother's festiva. City use is about the same, but my car is definitely cheaper for FWY use.

It costs me $80-$90 to run the Festiva from Penrith to Forster and back.


Having said that, my LPG is factory fitted -- but otherwise sounds like your LPG system could do with a tune, it's running a tad rich!!
