I am thinking of having my Renault Clio 2 litre converted to LPG. I have read through old posts and have come to the following conclusions: <BR>1) I will get 20-25% less MPG <BR>2) I will get about 5% less power <BR>Are these conclusions correct ? <BR>Is it worth getting a more expensive sequential multipoint system, or is a system like this link ok as it's much cheaper <BR><a href="http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/LPG-AUTOGAS-CONVERSION-695-ALL-INCLUSIVE_W0QQitemZ260120324374QQihZ016QQcategoryZ36631QQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem" target=_top>http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/LPG-AUTOGAS-CONVERSION-695-ALL-INCLUSIVE_W0QQitemZ260120324374QQihZ016QQcategoryZ36631QQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem</a> <BR>Thanks in advance to anyone who takes the trouble to reply to this post

What year is the car? I would say that this system is probably not suitable. Personally, if I were paying out I'd pay the extra for a multipoint system.

I've a Prins muti point dual sequential system in my 330ci bm and it does around 10% less mpg with performance unaffected - it will still pull an indicated 155mph on gas as on petrol. <BR> <BR>jamesy

The price says it all!!! <BR>Also according to the LPGA list of aproved installers they are not aproved , so the certificate will not be valid with insurance companys if requested. <BR> <BR>Do some more research , before you commit yourself and possibly make a costly mistake. <BR> <BR>Cheers Keith <BR> <BR> <BR><a href="http://www.gastech.org.uk" target=_top>www.gastech.org.uk</a>

If the equipment used is the same as shown in the photos, then it's a perfectly good quality second generation mixer system. In fact, exactly the same equipment as I've been running in one of my cars for seven years without any serious problems. <BR>LPGA membership has little relevance to the standard of installation, and there still are plenty of insurance companies out there that aren't interested in any way as to what fuel you run your car on, as long as it doesn't boost performance. <BR>In some parts of the world, the quoted price would be considered outrageously expensive. <BR> Unfortunately, this system is not really suitable for your car.

This goes back to many earlier posts , "buy cheap buy twice". <BR>The quality of equipment was never in question. <BR> <BR>Fortunatly due to exhaustive campaigning by the LPGA more and more insurance companys now require an LPGA cert. <BR> <BR>cheers Keith <BR> <BR><a href="http://www.gastech.org.uk" target=_top>www.gastech.org.uk</a>
