    Diesels with LPG are not worthwhile. They basically run the engine at it's maximum contamination limit of petrol in laymans terms, although a gas version.

    You may experience a little difference in power off the mark, but costs and damage risk are not really worthwhile in reality.

    If it is performance that is bothering you, a good diesel specialist can wind your pump up to give you a little more power, but obviously that would impact on fuel consumption.

    If it is economy, an older engine lends itself to biodiesel alternatives very nicely, should that be a path you would want to take to save fuel costs.

    looking at if its going to cost £1500 thats a hell of a lot of miles even at £1.43 per litre and 25 miles to the gallon its 5776.16 miles

    In the past I have driven trucks with LPG conversions always ran like pigs when on LPG.
