gtferrari Asks yourself this, when you drive what will be the mileage and will there be an ample supply of refueling stations where you go? What will be the maintenance on this sytem? How will it effect your mot? Resale value? Installation costs and economy? Insurance? How much longer do you expect to own the car? How much space will the tanks take up in the boot? What will the performance be like in the winter or summer?

Urbanspacedude91 Considering you have a zetec and not a duratec i would ask the guys in the zetec performance section. I could imagine more than a couple people would have answers there!!

LPG conversion good idea or not

Iím considering converting my car to LPG. I own a 2009 Ford Focus style 1.6 4 cylinder.
I have spoken to a few installers and read a forum blogs with differing opinions with regards to Valve Seat Recession.
One installer advised that Flashlube system would only delay the Valve seat recession whereas others advised the JML Flashlube system would prevent any Valve seat recession. The same can be said about blogs on forums.
As far as I know my 2009 zetec engine has soft valve seats and the therefore are more likely to suffer VSR.
Is there anybody out there or knows somebody who has experience of having a MK11 Ford Focus zetec engine converted to use LPG with a Flashlube system. Therefore would recommend conversion or not.
Thanks in advance for your comments.
