Im never done filling this baby up and i get decent fuel consumption, but have to take the wife to work and then go myself, i may be a bit lighter in the pocket due to the weight of the car and size of the engine, compared to the mondeo........ but god its worth it ;D i love the sweet growl of that v6 so much, half the time i drive with the radio off, and window down a bit, maybe this will wear off when i have owned the car a bit longer, but i doubt it lol  :D

Does the LPG mod affect your insurance premium?

It depends on the work i do as how far i go on 38l......normally if i dont get out of Swindon and just do constant town work....i get 125miles....if i do all motorway work....at a naughty 80mph i get 200 miles outa 38l

My spend is usually £300/month on lpg......plus £20 on petrol/month

I have an account with Countrywide.....use a key an pin number at the pump....fill up and go.
I get discount on the lpg......being a member of the Shropshire LPG users....pay em £10/year to be a member.....i know it sounds mad.....im no where near Shropshire.....but they used to have a deal with Countrywide to get discount on the LPG.....so basically im a member get the discount....about 5/6p a litre.....but unfortunatley Countrywide stopped giving discount to new members of the Shropshires LPG users about 7 months ago......but existing members still get the discount....so im happy  :)

Gotta remember to keep paying the subscription to the Shropshire LPG users  ;)

Cheers

Usually no......if it does change your insurance comp.

Mine just wanted to put the copy of the lpg certificate on file.....no difference to the premium

Just got back from a couple of weeks in South Florida.  Had a real laugh as all the petrol stations have gone 'pre-pay' in an effort to stop 'fill and run' type petrol thiefs.
They're starting to advertise 'economy' cars and are really worried about the future of the gas guzzler.

Why the panic?

Petrol has gone up to $2.80 a gallon.  That's about £1.60!!!!!!!  When we said we pay around $8.00 a gallon, they thought we were joking!

Witchya there Bob!! I'm seriously considering a Monaro next year, (And believe me, having sat in an LS1 a couple of weeks ago I do not say this lightly!!), but I wouldn't complain in the slightest if I had to keep my Omega estate!!

50 Litres of fuel =  200 miles!?  :o

The Omega has a 60 Litre petrol tank I belive? - I regually get 450 miles from a tank!
