LPG Conversions...

Can they be done on Impreza's?

I think the boot needs to be used for something useful rather than just adding a bit of spare room at the back of the car!!

40p/litre cant be bad.... Fuel prices are getting stupid.... At the loss of a few BHP and maybe MPG's (I heard its not as efficent or something) I wont be bothered

Anyone else tempted?? Just wondering how it would work for re-mapped cars??....

I've got to try and find out... I think its definitely a consideration for keeping the car and maybe even being able to use it every day

I dont know about others, but I've not used my car for just over two weeks but fuel has gone up nearly every other day by the sounds and searches I've been doing online...

If you can afford to own and mod a car, you cant complain about fuel prices.....

I'll complain because it sucks... Damn wars and oil companies just wanting to make more money... Did you know that BP only made 3.3 Billion pounds profit over 3 months? They make over £1 million a day or more...

Me thinks its time I saved myself some money

I think the only real reason its gone up isnt sooo much to do with this war over in Lebanin (I'm sorry I cant spell it properly) but to do with the oil companies thinking, right, lets rip them off some more... They'll pay it... Screw that

No more Besides, the car hasnt moved for two weeks, what the heck do I care?!

Because when I have to go and fill it up, I have to pay a £1 litre!! That's why!!

Oh if your interested in finding out how much a conversion would cost, have a look here:

http://www.greenfuel.org.uk/

There are a list of Impreza's they do... I didnt see mine there, so I have emailed them asking the question

I'm a little more, but then I do 400 just going to Trudi's and back each time, plus going around up there and when she is down, not adding that on.. At a guess the Scooby gets about 12,000 a year, and its not even my daily drive!!
