    I am about to place an order for a new Four Winds Siesta 28BG B Class RV.
    I have a choice of a Ford Triton V10 or Chevy Vortec V8.
    I will have it converted to LPG.
    What will give me the best MPG and performance, could I have your opinions please.
    My Hurricane on a Ford Triton V10 gives me 8mpg on LPG and has been faultless in use

    Thank you Larry

    The V8s are easier and cheaper to convert to LPG than the V10s i believe :thumb:

    But i do love the Ford Tritons :Wink:

    Hello Larry

    We have a Ford V10 Triton in ours and get an average of 13.5 mpg. We keep a log. We also looked into converting to gas however at £3000+ you'd need to do major mileage to recoup the cost.

    So we stayed with petrol and whinge about the price :BigGrin:
