Lpg

I’ve decided to remove the LPG System in my car. Can my mechanic do this for me or do I have to take it to a licensed person to do it? Also, what is the weight of a LPG tank, will the rear of my car become higher significantly or hardly noticeable? Thanks

Re: Lpg

a FULL LPG tank with 60litres of LPG will weigh approx 60kg including the tank. it makes a slight difference.
it changes the rear of my car by about an inch :o

Re: Lpg

He has the amp mounted between the back seat and the LPG, and the subby is in the boot facing towards the LPG tank

Re: Lpg

does it sound good though. i was gonna do the same, but i thought it would lose it's "kick" (i don't listen to much doof-doof techno, i just wanted a bit more depth of sound)
you mustn't have much boot space! and doesn't it bounce around in the boot a bit if your driving gets spirited?

Re: Lpg

I had mine bolted down to the side of the boot, facing to one side. The LPG tank doesnt take away that much sound, though of course i cant do a direct comparison. With the side mount and a reasonably small box i lost less than half of the boot. Currently i have a 4 cubic foot box taking up the whole boot... heh heh heh

Walkinshaw did a spare wheel well install and lost no boot space, but youd have to be careful of the sub if you put things in the boot.

Re: Lpg

sounds fine, i only did it to get the bass notes, never push my sound system to the limits, its just nice to have soemthing producing some bass, i find its deffinately worth it.
