Lpg conversion £890??

Postby peterg » 28 Jul 2010, 12:31

Hi, Has anybory used this company? http://www.professautogas.co.uk/index.html £890 for a full converstion fitted in a day 65 - 70 lt tank??? They state the tank needs to be fitted in place of spare wheel but really dont want to have to lug that around and have bike rack on back.. Also dont want to lose space under seats or back cupboard.. Got to comprimise somewhere I recon tho. Have read about some vans having underslung tanks, are these all spare wheel converstions?? Any help or thoughts?

Gasure.... no contest, sorry.
And..... you are already in Staffordshire, and they are not a million miles away in Chester.

The spare wheel well tanks only hold around 40 litres not 65-70.

Diesel is an engine not a fuel.

Spoke to Steve at Gasure and he advises that max 55 in spare wheel tray.. So you are right, also makes the Autogas guy sound a bit duff if he gave me wrong advise to start!! People sure rate that Gasure, thats for sure.. bum, bum!! Steve states £999 for my 2.1ij WBX so sounds like a good deal.. Still thinking if anyone had used these Autogas guys?

I don't get it.. surely you want more of the cheaper fuel?

you have an Auto sleeper high top camper, which is the same as mine
Gasure fitted my 72 lt tank under the bed and I lost very little storage,

I mean it's not like were struggling for space here :?
What do you keep under the bed?

Hey Kev, Thanks for putting me onto the Autosleeper way back when I was still in a bay poptop.. Keep meaning to post pics of adventures on here.. Your seat looks further forward and looks like you moved it from the marks, does table hole need moving? Looks like it would be tight on mine??

Seems like Gasure is way to go from what I'm finding out... Any probs with yours??

Ah yes, I had to move the seat bulkhead forward. (approx 6")
and yes the table socket got moved to. (6")

the big bin storage (with the wire baskets) bottom is just high enough to clear the tank.
I then cut a hole in the side of the unit so the tank would sit under the cupboard for a third of it .
I can still fit the potty in the bottom cupboard and have lost no room at all under the bed, it's just "squarer" :D

yes it's a faff, but i have a 240 mile tank of cheap fuel.

I guess it depends on your commitment to changing autosleepers' seat position and floor covering. Mine has been done tastefully, I retain the conversions attributes, albeit with 6" less floor space.

Yeah, like it... How could anyone.. if "sleeps 4" sit at the other side of that table anyhow??? Makes sense to me to move it... In a world which often makes no sense at all!!! Thanks Kev
