hi there, I'm looking for a bit of advice, I have had a few quotes for LPG conversion for my lexus ls400, best quote is £895 inc for a single point conversion with a flashlube kit fitted, other installers refuse to quote for a single point conversion saying the eninge won't run correctly, can anyone shed any light on this matter ? will the engine run on that conversion? many thanks

Why would all those evil money grabbing installers tell you a thing like that? Could it be so that they can charge you more and line their pockets at your expense? Or could it perhaps be because it is true? <BR> <BR>Clue: modern engine, catalytic convertor...??

Luke hi , yes it is possible to get your car to run on a fixed collar type system,BUT,£895 is not the best quote but the worst. <BR>Even at that cost the final result,even if the "converter"sticks to the quote [ highly unlikely]you will live to regret the decision!. <BR>Buy cheap , buy twice,or three times in this case. <BR> <BR>I have done a few LS 400,s,with no problems. <BR> <BR>Injection is the only answer, i wont post my recomended system,as it will only cause a conflict of interest. <BR>However if you are near Essex feel free to contact me ,i will be delighted to talk to you, <BR>any where else in the country talk to Jackie @ CLS Dual Fuel 0191 384 9629,she will advise you of your nearest conerter. <BR> <BR> <BR>Cheers Keith <BR> <BR> <BR><a href="http://www.gastech.org.uk" target=_top>www.gastech.org.uk</a>

Luke hi, be carefull mate , you are opening a can of worms here. <BR>We have a local lexus specialist,they retail LPG,but they wont install they recomend me.In turn i send all my lexus customers to them [including my own IS300] <BR> <BR>secondly,£1500 inclusive i presume,you aint going to get a lot for the money apart from headaches. <BR> <BR>I whole heartedly recomend you do a lot more research,if you buy cheap you will regret it. <BR> <BR>Cheers Keith

Very good advise Alex , [Prins only works well,or better],i fear the next time we hear from this guy is after he has had £900 worth fitted and has a whole heap of trouble .

theres only about £500 difference between bargain basement SGI and top notch SGI-it will be worth every penny of that £500 if it avoids problems
