Re: LPG Figures

I get about 300-320 from a tank. I drive pretty hard all the time though.

Re: LPG Figures

I don't usually fill up because it takes ages to on gas hehe. I get $5 or so every couple of days, which gets me about 65-85km depending on the price of gas.

All these suckers on petrol....

Re: LPG Figures

Between 320 - 400 for me, I used to get over 400 consistently but I've had gas issues and a reduction in economy, 320 or so.

Re: LPG Figures

I get about 6-6.5km/l in my bored out xf with gas cam and 2.92 diff 3spd auto (damn it all). With hard driving that goes down to about 5km/l but never been below that. so somewhere around 450km to 70lt from full to dregs!

Re: LPG Figures

Oh the Ea (when running) gets around 300-400 km out of a tank. Long distances, around 450-500km.

Sundeep,

Just get an old spark plug and jam it in the filler - you know, where you hold it with your hand. Petrol fillers used to (and some do now) have a little clip which meant the pump filled it up for you.

I know it says don't jam any objects in there on the instructions but if you are standing right next to it, what's the difference? Then you don't have to be holding it, making your hand ache.

I've done it on all my LPG cars for over 10 years and have never had a problem with it.
