LPG removal

How easy is it to take out my LPG tank, will it make a huge difference to my ride height?

Re: LPG removal

Only if full, otherwise I think not enough to worry about.

Oh and tanks should be removed with caution, although they have shut off valves that are closed by default (from memory), all care should be taken.

I did put something here, but it vanshied, I think

Re: LPG removal

the tank valve is always open, i think you mean the default on the line solenoids is 'off'..

They are not light either, usually a two man job

Re: LPG removal

It is actually illegal to remove an LPG tank.
As far as I know.

Re: LPG removal

The tank that's usually fitted in 'E' series sedans (mild steel, 68 litres useable capacity) weighs about 38 kg's with either brackets or cradle.
A stainless steel tank is a bit lighter.
