Have you seen the price of LPG recently Allan, it’s now over £1.00 a litre and likely to rise further?

If you consider the price of the conversion would you ever recover the cost?

Hi Steve... I did not know that... it is 72p where I am, but then petrol heading to £2 per litre it still sounds like a good deal as I have spent over £400 in the last 3 weeks on crappy e10 fuel.

Even at half the price of lpg its got to be worth it.

Do you use it Steve?

74ppl where I live so still viable here.

I can highly recommend http://lpgc.co.uk/ who have done two conversions for me in the past.

Based in South Elmsall, West Yorkshire, he doesn't just fit a kit of parts like a Meccano set, but he really understands both the practicalities and the science behind how it all works. Consequently, he has the skill to 'mix and match' components to make a bespoke system that will really get the best out of the installation and the car itself.

Thanks Herbs and Mark.

That installation is very informative it's a shame the photos seem to be expired.

I was torn between having it done and fitting it myself I got the time at the moment to do so,

The photos are still there you just need to use a little workaround to get them. Its Photobuckets fault they changed everything and as a result there are boards out there with photos that just dont show up without the original poster going back in and relinking and in some cases that runs to thousands of photos (dont ask me how I know) 😭

Anyway - you need to be on a computer and if you "hover" your mouse over the dead photo link and right click on it then copy the text - you will see the photo link in there - starts with http:// and ends in .jpg just copy that bit in to another browser window and you can see the photo.

There are browser plugins/extensions available such as this one for Chrome (just Google for Photobucket hotlink fix for your browser of choice) that solve this problem.

Photobucket did this to basically ransom their users into paying subscriptions instead of remaining free and these plugins/extensions work around that. Of course, Photobucket don't like that so it seems to be a bit of a cat and mouse game between the developer of the plugin and Photobucket - he makes a loophole, they close it; he makes another one, they close it and so on.

When it stops working just update it again, no great hardship because it could work for months, even years, before it needs updating.

Yeah I have used the hotfix for a while and as you say it keeps changing and currently does not fix the issue for me at the moment (they say its a "legacy issue" and I need to relink) really annoying as I actually pay for all of my PB accounts and even as a paying customer they dont care. Sad thing is I dont have the option or the skills needed to move or recode so many photographs in a phpbb3 database. 😕

    • All-new Lexus RX: luxury expressed in interior design simplicity
      Lavish details and flourishes are not necessarily the best way to express luxury. A “less is more” approach with design simplicity can be a much more effective way to communicate high quality, as witnessed in the interior of the all-new Lexus RX

    • 10 years of Lexus design: from spindle grille to spindle body
      After 10 years as a defining style feature of every new Lexus model, the famous spindle grille is undergoing a transformation. In tune with a new era of electrified vehicles, the distinctive shape is evolving into a new “spindle body,” as seen on the upcoming new generation Lexus RX SUV and the all-electric RZ.

      The spindle grille has been an unmistakeable Lexus feature since it was first revealed on the LF-Gh concept model of 2011, the basis for the fourth generation GS executive saloon that was launched the following year. Since then, it has been constantly adapted to suit the character of each successive Lexus model, with different mesh patterns, dimensions and finishes.


      Speaking at the time of the grille’s debut, the then Head of Lexus Kiyotake Ise said: “You should be able to identify a car as a Lexus immediately… Instant visual recognition, for example, is the reason behind our spindle grille. It may look aggressive at first glance, that’s intentional, but it also conveys its boldness with sophistication and elegance.”


      It has progressed to become a hallmark expression of Lexus’s L-finesse design, adopted not only for road-going cars, but also incorporated in the futuristic Skyjet spacecraft created for the Lexus-supported movie Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets and adopted as a design motif in the Loft, the award-winning Lexus and Brussels Airlines lounge at Brussels Airport.


      Today, the original grille concept is the starting point for a more radical application of the spindle shape in which it becomes an integral part of the vehicle’s overall design. This “spindle body” approach is part of the Lexus Next Chapter design for the all-new RX, where the grille is reinterpreted as a seamless unit that flows into the bodywork. The lower section retains a mesh pattern, while the upper section takes in the lower edge of the bonnet; the Lexus emblems sits at the centre of the spindle’s high pinch-point.


      The same concept has been applied to the RZ 450e. As a battery electric vehicle, this requires less cooling than a car with a conventional engine, so the grille has been dispensed with, giving the designers greater freedom. Nonetheless, the spindle shape remains prominent in a central front panel, finished in the car’s body colour. Its impact is heightened by the adjacent frontal areas being contrast-finished in black, the low bonnet line and more boldly shaped front wings.

      On both models, the spindle generates lines that flow back from the front of the car through the bonnet and headlamp units to create a strong and distinctive frontal appearance, reinforcing the brand-defining ambitions of the original concept.
