LPG Installer needed - not too far from W Sussex

#1 Post by stevejs » Tue Feb 11, 2020 6:19 pm

I have just purchased a BMW X5 4.8i E70 (2008) with seven seats.

I would like to have an LPG system installed with the tank in the space under the boot floor where the rear folding seats currently live.


What system would you recommend and how large a tank can fit in the space?

Where are you based and how much would it cost?

Kind regards

Steve

Simon will be the best person to answer you on the technical side (as he's probably done hundreds of these) although he's a fair way from W Sussex. However, it's better to travel and get a decent job done that get a local bodge job done.

Thanks Gilbert.

It'll be a Valvetronic engine on that year and being a 4.8.

I've detailed special measures that need to be taken for best results on a Valvetronic on this thread viewtopic.php?f=27&t=14183&p=113457&hil ... ic#p113457

If it has the standard boot floor it'll take an 84L tank, or if it has the slide out boot floor it'll take a 93L tank.
