LPG Autogas £0.49.7 @ ASDA Dundee

Found 12th Jul 2015
It's the lowest price since I installed my LPG system on my 2.4 accord. It used to be 0.54.7. Now I can drive from Dundee to Manchester and back for less than £50.

Good for you. Now do you have the ability to make petrol do the same?

No possible way. It's a big engine. If i drive with 50-55mph on the motorway with the petrol price from the picture it turns out to be £65. If i drive normally with 70mph the same trip will cost me £85

I've seen ads for diesel converting but now most of the companies startes that they no longer do diesel conversions. I don't know why they stopped.

if anyone knows somewhere/someone that still does the diesel convention, but appreciated for a response

you got my + Milev

Hot from me. Ive been running LPG for 10years now. I had my Volvo C70 2.4i converted in south wales about 4 years ago and done 55k miles on LPG which has paid for the conversion and still runs same as when i had it done. Never had the LPG serviced or changed the filters either. i can travel 450 miles on a £50 tank motorway miles

Its not bad idea to change the filters and someone to do valve adjustment. It's recommended when you have lpg fitted.

It is advised to get regular service of the LPG system just i chose not to. I do get the car regularly serviced just not the LPG so far. I still think it was the best investment ive ever done to a car i have owned

15 years running a LPG converted 2.0L VW T4 Transporter. £0.49 is a great price. Nothing close to that price in Aberdeen or anywhere else for a long,long time!

Which LPG system do you have?

Which LPG system do you have?


Not sure. It was just fitted and worked so not even looked at it in the time ive had it. I have a 72 litre cylinder in my boot which does take up half of my boot but the miles i get are worth the space it takes. Best price round south cumbria is 55p per litre

Why would you want to go back to Dundee?

Why would you want to go back to Dundee?



Obviously cos it's that bit further away from London

Heat from me, running LPG on my RX8 for the past 9 months, already covered 20k miles so its paid for itself and then some.

Cheapest price by me is 0.52p/litre.

We always top up here as its cheapest in Dundee. Just a wee tip for anyone over in Glasgow, we noticed the Morrisons garage at the Fort now does lpg for not too bad a price.

I did Essex to Edinburgh and back on a tank of fuel 5 years ago in a 1.5 diesel Megane. It was a long slow drive I can tell you that much!

43p/l if u want to fill lpg and go, 40p/l if u will get it for Ł100 for a fob key and then fill any time 24/7.... by star city, birmingham

Hot because you own a 2.4 Accord, fantastic cars with a sublime engine

42p in birmingham

It's possible to convert diesels,but it's not worth it on regular cars - only makes sense on buses and trucks really. Basically it works by adding a bit of LPG to diesel when it's injected into the engine,boosting the power and reducing diesel consumption by a bit(essentially it makes the burning process more efficient,so less fuel is used). It is a saving, but you would never make the money spent on the installation back in a regular car.

This and if im not mistaken something has to be done to the Cylinder head as well.

It is 54p in.. Bp herts... Along a11 to Norwich gas goes up in the 60,s... Unfortunately no asda selling fuel nearby but. I thought 54 was cheap.
Gas is a cleaner fuel than petrol so you get less emissions. More miles to the gallon.. The down side is it is less powerful and you sometimes get flarring... My 2 litre engine instead of 20mpg gets 44 mpg on gas.. I drive sedately but if I ever need to get out of trouble or over take. Or a lorry or a boy racer puts their footdown then I just have to press a button and it switches over to petrol and is like a nitrous oxide boost and I leave them for dust.
Best investment you can make.. Buying used with conversion already done is cheaper but make sure you get the fitting certificate as some insurance companies won't cover you with out it.

The 1.5 dci is great on fuel but it is problematic engine. Mine is 194bhp honda engine with no weaknesses on it. Tried it on the autobahn in Germany. 80-100mph and the difference was that 1l/100km(60m) or from 30mpg to 27mpg so for example with the prices from the picture lets say your dci is doing 60mpg on the same trip Dundee Manchester i will spend about £47. With the dci you will spend £54. I think the lpg is better than diesel. However as amount of fuel it consumes more but its on half price compared with petrol.

Varies from 50p up to 65p locally here (Gateshead/Durham). My husband was in Birmingham 2 weeks ago and was amazed to it for £40p!
Our Volvo V70 R (300bhp) would cost a fortune in petrol to run it as much as we do... as it is we spend approx £200 a month on lpg... the same I spend flling up my Subaru Forester XT, we have an lpg kit in the garage waiting to be fitted, its just finding the time.
Best thing we ever did lpg... Great price too - just wish it would drop here as it seems to be for the rest of the country.

We have never found this... could it be the set up of your kit? If I put my foot to the floor my car goes... petrol or lpg is no different re perfarmance.

That doesn't sound like great mpg surely? My 1.4 petrol merc a-class costs circa £50 for a full tank and gets me at least 400miles with "spirited" driving, could probably clear 450 if I took it easy I'm sure. I've never researched LPG conversions but sounds like false economy to me, pay less at pumps but get less miles?

Thats an odd conversion if you actually get MORE MPG on LPG than Petrol
Or are you talking the equivalent cost?
And switching to petrol make very little difference to the overall performance - unless again there is something odd with your conversion

You are however comparing the LPG mileage from a much larger engined car to your tiny turbocharged unit. If you LPG converted yours, the same trip would probably cost £30. So £20 saving per fill up, more if you drive sedately. A 4 pot conversion would vary from £650 - £850 at a good installer. So you would recoup your outlay in about 10-12000 miles and then make significant savings per tankful.

But this is only viable if you do the mileage. Less than 20k per year, i wouldnt bother.

Lastly dont forget the cost difference between a newer turbo Merc and an older Accord. In return you get a lot more comfort and space. I run a 3L V6 auto and save around 10-12 p per mile. No way you would be able to get that sort of savings without paying a lot of dosh for an ultra efficient new diesel. And loose a lot of space, luxury and toys in return.

Sounds like something is wrong with your conversion. LPG always delivers less mpg. This is because it has a lower calorific value although it has a higher octane rating.

What is flarring? I havent needed to switch to petrol since I converted 4 years ago. And in terms of power I can feel no difference at all. But then mine was installed by someone I know and is setup perfectly.

What you are describing sounds like a very poorly setup LPG install. You shouldnt be able to feel the difference between LPG and petrol if properly setup. My better half drives an older supercharged RR and there is no appreciable difference between petrol and LPG.

My car is 13 years old in Sept, 21mpg on petrol, 19 mpg on LPG. Petrol is £1.14, LPG £0.52. I have worked out 10-12 ppmile savings. No other way you could could make that sort of savings on a large exec barge. Mileage is around 30k pr year.

Yes. 2004 s type estate with prince silverline installed. One of the best combinations available of durability and value. Believe me my father is mechanic for 35 years and when i was about to buy a car he warned me "Son if you buy a french car I will kill you "
