Dont buy a T25 with lpg,the heads on them dont have a lot of meat under the valve seats and it burns them out,blows back through and frys the air flow meter if they are injection,frys the carb if they are not.T25 specialist located in guildford surrey 07817 865 722spannerboy

Open forum, everyone is entitled to his/her opinions.

and im sure it could cause the damage described if not fitted and serviced corectly.

It has been proven 100 times over if LPG is fitted and serviced correctly it don't harm the engine.

I have help rebuild two engines run on LPG and nowt wrong with them.

I do >14K a year on a 1981 Aircooled and it don't miss a trick, half price camping bring it on.

Steve will correct me if I'm wrong but I believe our Bus was converted nearly 4 years ago and I average 20,000 per year. Since then it's been all over the UK and mainland Europe with no lpg related issues what-so-ever, except it's allowed me to afford to use the van vastly more than I would be able to on petrol.

Spannerboy's entitled to his opinion ... no matter how wrong it is.
