Default Re: LPG (Autogas) Conversion information?

There are a few firms hovering over on the "lpg forum" that have converted the Prius noticeably Classicswede and LPG-cars of Coventry. The Prins dealer network also offer a system for the Prius.
The Prius needs a lpg kit that will switch straight to lpg again after your car has shut down at traffic lights as they don't all do that.
Any Japanese car and most post 54 plate cars seem to have soft valve seats nowadays but the simple truth is if the lpg system is set up properly and a valve lube system is used then the wear is minimal and will be taken up by adjustment wheather it be by manual or automatic valve lifters.
If you search the UK lpg forum you will find plenty of info regards the lpg Prius conversions.
We have 2 cars running on lpg for 5 years now, not battery ones though and our only regret is that we did'nt do it sooner.
I fitted one of our systems myself and it is not too hard if you are electrically and mechanically minded as modern cars are not as complicated as people think. One of the companys listed abouve is now offering a Prius DIY LPG kit for 650 including instructions, install support, system set-up as you cannot manually set up a Prius and a UKLPG safety inspection and certificate which your insurance company will want to see. I can see a used Prius and DIY LPG kit in my future.
