Only just seen this post so it may now be too late for you, but I can absolutely and categorically
say that MoreThan DO
insure LPG cars - they've been covering mine for more than two years!! And not only that, they actually give a 10% discount on the premium for LPG.
See the 4th post down on the first page of this very thread - I posted that in October 2008.
I just rang More Than, asked them what there LPG conversion policy was for modified cars. They didnt know what lpg was.......so who do I really need to speak with?
Also spoke to LVE, they insure at no extra premium and don't ask for a certificate, and don't mention anything about approved fitters.
Just looked on the UKLPG website and those insurers are on there, who have signed up for this online registration. Most main lpg fitter companies arent registered, so how do they get round the no certificate requirement. It's a minefield.
I've DIY converted my car iaw COP11, i have informed my insurer and have a new policy and certificate stating a LPG modification.
Now I'm stuck as to where to go from here to get a valid certificate or online registration (since July 2010, certificates are invalid for LVE), but yet again their own Customer Services don't know about it.
I'm glad my car is old and cheap that I could possibly either repair it myself or buy another car should my insurance be void by this nightmare of an insurance wrangling minefield.
