238.6 miles since the last fill. Took 53.95 litres at 40.9p / litre ...
and cost me 22 quid
Actual consumption of 20.11mpg, 'notional' (adjusted for the price differential) consumption of 40.75mpg
I love LPG

May I share your "smug mode"?
Gonna fill mine up tomorrow before going home and it's finally after 4K miles starting to get decent mpg from this new engine (though I have nursed it a bit this week)
So far done 425 mixed town, A road, M1 & M25 miles since Tuesday night, have 1/4 tank left & SID average mpg of 37.6mpg. I love my diesel despite it's hiccups http://www.saabscene.com/forum/images/smilies/thumbsup.gif

1/4 tank left (of the second one )
computer is indicating 66.7 mpg....(about 34 really )
none of that filty diesel or that lpg nonsense
400 hp and 34 mpg ...must be a reckord somewhere...

And the award for the smuggest grin goes to...Ylee http://www.saabscene.com/forum/images/smilies/rolleyes.gif
Bet you didn't use many of those 400 horses while getting 34 mpg though
Mine did get a flat out run through 10 miles of wiggly lanes on this tank...

James, what car+engine are you running LPG with ?
03-11-2005, 03:53 PM
It's a 1993 900SE, Mark - more here (http://www.saabscene.co.uk/ubb/ultimatebb.php?/topic/3/1269.html). Non-turbo, I'm afraid, but I didn't really buy it for speed ...
I have to say, the LPG conversion seems to work very well. The only difference running on 'gas' is a slightly uneven idle, and that's only noticeable if you know to look for it.
