Hi all,

Just converted my 430 to use LPG fuel. Runs beautifully, on BRC plug&drive hardware/software. Seamless and automatic switchover from petrol->LPG. Done in Poland in a Lexus approved installer, 2yrs warranty. Can share pics and experience further. Happy to answer any questions.

Sorry, by mistake I sent it to GS forum, Can an admin move it over to the LS 430 section please? Or, shall I copy this content there myself?

No, I did it in Warsaw, Energy Gaz Polska, or Energy Gas Poland. They specialise in challenging projects, and have been auhtorised by many dealers, including Toyota/Lexus. They've done dozens of LS 430s, and showed me some of their clients have covered 700k+ km on LPG fitted LS430s and still running no problems at all. So, I had to look no further. I wanted an experienced garage and engineers that know this particular V8 (3UZ), and they know what they are doing, so I end up with the best gas conversion kit possible for this car and get the best work done, the price did not matter.

By the way I've seen some very impressive LPG conversion projects made by them: Audi RS6 V8 4.2 bi-turbo 511 bhp, Subaru WRX, and lately Ddodge RAM SRT10 with Viper V10 8.3L 517 bhp

Those who know the subject will recognise some parts. The LPG ECU hidden away under one of the covers on the RHS.

      Dear All,
      I am looking to buy a used Lexus RX400H. I have few questions and would be very grateful if someone can answer them.
      1) I am looking for 2005, 06, 07 model. can someone suggest if there is any difference between them?
      2) What are the difference between SE and SE-L models? how is the sound system on SE? I m not too bothered about DVD screens on back rest but want a great speaker system.
      3) I have seen a car which do not have headrest dvd screens. is it possible to get them fitted?
      4) any thoughts of getting a LPG system fitted onto it?
      Thanks alot.

      Hi everyone. I'm looking for a well maintained and highly specced RX300. I'd be especially interested in a car that has had an LPG conversion. Anywhere within about 100 miles of Cheltenham would be fine.

      I have just had my 13 year old 230K miles LPG 430 MOT'ed and it passed with no probs (as usual).
      I keep expecting to be in the market for another car but the beast keeps rolling :)
      I had some reservations this year because the engine warning light was on (Cat at low efficiency) which usually means apin hole in my exhaust (had some welded up) or a Lambda sensor failing - so I asked the guys to check and fix before they tested the car. No probs found and despite the light because they tested on LPG the emissions test was passed and I have an MoT - no advisories.
      For a couple of days I could not fill up with LPG so I put in 1/2 a tank of Shell Nitro V and after a few miles thewarning light went out. Back on LPG and no probs yet - the light has not come back on.
      This got me thinking - I don't keep much petrol in the tank 1/4 ish usually and it often dips lower, so have I been sucking crud from the bottom of my tank and this has caused my CAT problem? I'd like to think the filters would take care of any junk.
      I am thinking about giving my tank an 'enema' so has anyone had to or has done so and was it worth while?
      Does anybody know where to get hold of reasonably priced break ware sensor cables?
      Regards
      Bren

      Hi,
      I'm thinking of getting a Lexus IS250 Auto. I've been looking online and the tech specification show the following MPG:
      Urban 22.2 mpg
      Extra Urban 40.4 mpg
      Average 31.0 mpg
      Is anyone getting anywhere near these figures. I know normally they are not very accurate and I do a lot of mileage so need to check!
      Also I wanted to get the car LPG converted, but contacted a few companies and they said they can't as it s a direct injection system. Has anyone manage to get it done?
      Thanks

      Hi,
      I've owned my IS200 for about 7 years, it's a 2001 x-reg with just under 105,000 on the clock. My wife is a bit scared to drive it after a couple of bad skids on ice (rear-wheel drive culpable, I think) but I still love it.
      However, I've recently thought I should p/x and buy a small used diesel like a Peugeot 206 to cut fuel bills. On reflection though, I thought I could maybe keep the IS and add an LPG system.
      I plan to emigrate in about 5 years time so I really only need the car (our second car - we have a bigger family car) to do about 50,000 more miles; my only worry is that it might have some major (expensive) problems in the next 50K? With its 100K service due (cam belt) and the LPG installation I'll be sinking roughly 2000 into the car which is less than buying a much newer Peugeot but if it has any major problems I don't want to keep pouring money into the IS when it's not worth any resale...
      Do you know of any common problems with the IS between 100K and 150K (or even 200K) miles?
      Does anyone have one that's been successfully converted to LPG?
      Thus far (touch wood!) I've not had any serious problems. It needs some reconditioned alloys and has been through lots of tires and twice has had problems starting (plus my key's snapped) but otherwise it's been bullet-proof.
      Any advice??
      Thanks,
      Ben
