Like Gilbert says, does that mean you're a criminal, and part of the group responsible for pushing the premiums up for the rest of us ?
its the poor kids who cant afford to drive and therefore get a decent job...our/your generation are very selfish..they are responsible for making it impossible for young people to afford a home...

You clearly have some sort of problem, but it's not in any way related to LPG. If you just want a rant and to slag everyone off then there are more appropriate forums for that.
the twats who go to university and think they are so smart

Ah, now we can start to work things out. You clearly have a bit of a reverse snobbery thing going on here.
As is often pointed out, there are many entrepreneurs who didn't go to university/get qualifications/whatever - and some of them have been quite successful. A common factor in nearly all cases I can think of is that they've been lucky enough to spot a market and exploit it - it hasn't been through technical skill.
Those "twats who [went] to university" will be the ones who did the physics that made it possible to make a computer that will fit in your house and be affordable by an individual, that did the physics that makes your ADSL (or even dial-up modem) work effectively, that did the physics and engineering development to make it efficient to get electricity to your house to run the computer, that did the physics and engineering to make an efficient car engine (and make car production efficient and automated as well), and ..., and ..., and ..., and the list just keeps going. Oh yes, to keep it vaguely on-topic, you'll find that there are a lot of graduates who were responsible for getting that lovely propane out of the ground and into your gas tank, and for making it possible to run your engine efficiently on it.

I've seen it in other forums. For example, in a renewable energy forum there was a hardcore wind power apologist who was quite happy to slag off the IET (what was previously the IEE) as nothing more than a bunch of nuclear apologists. Completely forgetting that it's mostly IET members that make it possible and practical to connect all those crappy windmills to the grid and still keep the lights on. It's notable that the most vocal person with this view didn't have the balls to put himself on an interruptible tariff and have his lights go out when the wind dropped - while simply waving away all the criticisms of wind power with a "people will adjust their usage".
dont insult my intelligence by saying its a conspiracy theory

Hmm, put these five words together into a well known sentence "pot" "calling" "the" "kettle" "black".
Because that's exactly what you are doing.

Thanks for the link to "Twin Towers collapsed by Ray Gun" website, it's a wonderful spoof.

Bit more on topic perhaps - do you also sell books about running a car on water?

I was beginning to wonder if Toolless had found a new car (after incinerating his Escort) and username (so we wouldn't realise it was him). I think I know now why he slagged off Adrian Flux in this thread viewtopic.php?f=34&t=5629, they wouldn't accept a Maestro as a Classic car.........

search.php?author_id=8143&sr=posts 18 posts, 15 about insurance, 1 about veggie oil and 2 about his Maestro on LPG (although he claims to be running on LPG but is also looking for a mixer......). I still find it horrifying that someone considers a Maestro a Classic and considers it worth converting to LPG. Adding just a mixer alone would double the value!

just sold one of my vehicles...but wanted to test drive it on the road so took out a really cheap insurance on monthly payments of £10 month...aim to drive it for about 2 weeks before i cancel the direct debit and sell it on...so by the time theyve issued all the paperwork and set up the contract with the loan company i reckon they will be well out of pocket...use and abuse em i say

Yup, looks that way,
In Internet slang, a troll (pron.: /ˈtroʊl/, /ˈtrɒl/) is someone who posts inflammatory, extraneous, or off-topic messages in an online community, such as a forum, chat room, or blog, with the primary intent of provoking readers into an emotional response or of otherwise disrupting normal on-topic discussion

But I'm going to bite anyway. Take out your cheap insurance, cancel the direct debit and then wait for the cancellation penalty. There will be a clause in the insurance documents which say that if you cancel within a short time, either 6 months or even the full premium, is payable immediately. The distance selling regulations 14 day cooling off period doesn't apply because you went to them and not the other way round. That's why short term insurance is expensive, to cover the admin costs of setting up the policy.

£245 fully comp protected no claims and LPG is no problem with insurance BUT they would not replace it in the event of a claim, Only replace a car without LPG

Or rather, look at the terms and decide if it is cover you want to pay for. Because you appear to consider all insurance a rip-off, despite the serious consequences of not having the right cover, doesn't mean everyone else thinks the same way.

A tiny minority might drive more carefully if it even occurred to them that they would be paying for the consequences of an accident out of their own pocket. If insurance wasn't compulsory then the number of tossers that drive like dickheads without any insurance now would simply increase.
