MPG?

Hi. About to buy an LPG 3.5V8 Mk1 Disco. Want to know what the MPG is on a 'cost equivalent'?

Thanks!

Hi, it depends really

Auto or manual,

EFI or carbs?

Multipoint or gas ring on the intake.

I have a 3.9V8 Auto which is EFI but its an old Llandi Renzo system with a gas ring on the air intake side and on standard tyres without the roof rack or suspension lift I was getting 12-14 MPG unloaded.

Since fitting 235/85/16 Mud terrain tyres and a 2in lift and light bar etc it now does about 11-12 MPG

as LPG is on average about half the price of petrol 12MPG would be the cost equivilent of about 24MPG.

Hope this helps.

I have LPG installed on my 3.9 engine, 8 LPG injectors. Now it consumes 5-10% more LPG comparing to petrol.
