rear load space petrol V LPG

Post by leopard_pagan on Sat Mar 16, 2013 4:51 pm

i know what load space a petrol hijet has.. someone mentioned that most LPG conversions loose load space for the LPG tank.
does the LPG van/mpv have less load space than a petrol?

No, most are underslung but that means theres no room for a spare tyre so you have to store that in the back if you want one.

Yep, I have no spare tyre in the red one, but if I was doing any distance I would just chuck one in the back.

LPG's are good, but I bet it's only a marginal saving on burning petrol.

Best thing is the LPG has no rev limiter!

Many years ago I was offered a lpg van which had a second tank fitted just behind the seats, to increase range. From memory it measured around 3' x 2' x 2', so made a serious dent in the carrying capacity.
