Dedicated LPG Wagon economy

Had the AUII Wagon now for a few weeks and I thought I'd post some consumption figures.... since I couldn't find any apart from fords own figures when I was window shopping.

880km using 208 litres of SHELL LPG gives, using my calculations 23litres/100km.

This was all city driving in fairly heavy traffic, air con on constantly and minimum 2 people, 3 child seats and a pram.

The car is an Automatic AUII Station Wagon with 25000km's on it and a dedicated LPG "Green" factory engine.

After bagging out the live rear axle and leaf springs on wagons a few weeks ago, I went and bought one - couldn't see through the blue mist, again.

And on Wednesdays I took it for a spirited drive along the Bells Line, and had a ball.

Bye the way, consumption looked a lot better on the open road, after completing 280km of spirited driving the DTE (alright "Distance to Empty) was showing 650km's which is more what i would expect at about 12L/100km.

I have now switched to BP LPG to see if it makes any difference to performance/economy.

My dad uses BP LPG on his AU2 DLPG Sedan and gets much better economy than that. His figures come out much the same as mine (AU1 Duel Fuel) around about 16 - 17L/100 in city, much better on highway

Dual Fuel 10/98 AU1 Forte
