Just as an aside, it annoys me that whilst I received regular letters from Countrywide (who I have an account with for autogas) telling me that LPG has increased in price due to the rising cost of petrol, they haven't reduced the price of LPG in recent weeks in line with the slight reduction in petrol costs.I had had my clk230 Komp converted about a month ago. 67ltr tank that holds about 54ltr is giving me about 250 miles. all the motorway services seem to sell the gas at about 62pence a ltr
Does anybody know the maximum sized upright tank that can be fitted in the spare wheel in the left hand side of a W210 estate?Fredhead is right about the size of tank. I have a 60L tank in the spare wheel well which gives me around 220 miles on the motorway, however around town you can find yourself filling more often then you'd like.
I've got an E240 (2.6 V6) and I get less MPG with gas - on motorway journeys I easily get over 30mpg with petrol and from rough calculations I'd reckon about 25mpg with LPG. I haven't regretted it at all - there are plenty of convenient filling stations near me, although prices do vary quite a bit.Hi Matt,
What sort of fuel economy do you get on petrol and on gas. I'd be really interested to know.
The tax is very slightly lower with 'dual fuel' - I think it's only £10 per year less.What is the current state of the tax situation with LPG?
I had a Range Rover for many years and this has always been hugely popular in those vehicles for obvious reasons...but there was a 5 year moritorium on tax increases on LPG that must be close to expiring......I just figured it was one of those things that would be kept artificially low until enough people were converted, then hike it up.....call me a cycnic!
