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.
