    You would need a VERY good LPG kit if you dont want to grenade the engine.

    Such a setup would likely cost about 2k i would imagine.

    I had 2 LPG installs in my cars and would never do it again.
    So many problems....
    And I had it on 2.0 Volvo and 2.0 Primera. With your 2.7BT engine wouldn't even touch it.
    But if you really want to go LPG route, buy the best install as you can. You will be looking at
    2k minimum for this engine. Stag or BRC sequent should be ok.
    Another thing is to calculate how much you spend a year for petrol.
    You need to see how many miles you need to do to get your money back.
    When you calculate that, remember that LPG fuelled car will take 1ltr/60miles more easily.
