Generally, LPG gas conversion is known to be one of the most effective methods of cutting on motoring costs.
In most services in the UK, the installation cost revolves between £1,200 and £ 2,000, depending on the system being used and the type of the vehicle we want to convert. When it comes to the type of the wehicle, anorher important factor influencing the price is whether the engine is about to have 3,4,5,6,7 or 8 cylinders. Of course, it is possible that we will find some cheaper offers, but If we don’t want to risk that the quality of the service will leave much to be desired, we should be extremly careful.
The conversion process is unevitably linked with losing a car for a few days (while it stays at the service), but, comparing to potential benefits, it is just a small inconveniece – the LPG system should have paid for itself in the first few years of its functioning.
How it happens?
The current price of LPG gas ranges around 60-70 penses, which is much lower than other types of fuels. It is also important to mention that UK tax levels are way lower in case of LPG gas than in case of any other fuel (it is caused by it’s eco-friendliness), which also has a huge influence on general cost of car operation. It is estimated that, considering actual lpg gas prices, driving an LPG-run car is around 33% cheaper than driving car running on any other type of fuel.
What is more, If You run about 12,000 miles a year, it is enough to restore the price You have spent on conversion process.
Having read all those informations, It seems clear that converting an LPG car is definitely an option worth considering.
