DIY LPG conversion for thrillseekers
Don't waste money on professional LPG conversions and all those unnecessary parts. In 30 seconds, with absolutely no mechanical skill or knowledge, you can have everything they offer, and lots more, at little or no cost.
Base model: Take your standard BBQ LPG cylinder, stuff it in the engine bay somewhere, and run a hose to the air filter. Turn on tap before, or maybe better after, starting engine.
The Defender model: Same, but mount LPG cylinder on front bumper, so that anyone that backs into you (or that you rear end - who cares?) hard enough gets LPG sprayed over their hot exhaust, with satisfactory results. OK, so you lose your car as well, but that's what insurance is for.
The Avenger model: Same as The Defender, but fit breakaway fitting to LPG hose connection and attach string, and run string to cabin. Gaffer tape cigarette lighter to LPG bottle below hose connection and run string to cabin. Make sure hose is pointing away from your car. When somone really pisses you off, get really close to them, pull both strings hard, and see what it's like driving a mobile flame thrower. Add oxy tank for extra effect.
