Mondeo mk3 1.8 LPG
Posted 09 March 2011 - 10:22 AM
I'm thinking to install LPG and I'd to know if anyone has something to advice me concerning this mod.
Please I'd like some help concerning this because I hear many opinions of doing this or not.
Should i install valve lubricant or not.
Should I be aware of something?
Thank you in advance

Over here your looking at £1500 - £2000 for a decent quality kit with valve lube. They do seem to recommend this for these
£2000 buys a lot of fuel, 15,000 miles worth? So if LPG is half price you need to do 30,000 before it pays for itself and starts to
actually save you money.

He did well over 100k on LPG and knew about Flashlube but took the chance in no fitting the auto system when he had the LPG kit fitted.
Due to the price increases he is considering going back to diesel. I have recommended a mk3 TDCi for cheap purchase or a mk4 without a DPF for long term use. He does 35k a year so long term use of an older car, such as my 2005 TDCi would not be viable.

It's more than paid for itself in that time and has presented no problems at all, breezing through emissions tests. Other than the slight reduction in boot space ( ) and the longer filling time, there are no downsides. See my fuel consumption results at the "fuel log" link below, although note that the overall cost per mile is distorted by historic low fuel costs. I pay roughly 1p/mile average for petrol, which it starts on, and roughly 1p/mile on Flashlube. Overall, it works out to about mid-50s mpg on current diesel prices, with petrol simplicity, cleanness (I can run the engine the my garage with no problems) and smoothness.
As the UK government is reducing the duty difference between petrol/diesel and LPG, it is becoming much less worthwhile to fit LPG now. Today, I'd probably use the extra money to get a tidy diesel instead. You'd have to do the maths yourself for Greece.
