LPG conversion is the best thing what i could do(and I did) to my car, very happy about it, I got it 6-7 months and I did cca 10000 km and no problem at all, 10-11L/100km when price is cca 80c/Liter is kind "cool".
PJ, Mercedes S350
I drive a S 350 Mercedes & since I converted to LPG last August I have reduced my fuel cost by 50 per cent and am very happy with my car's performance.
Kevin, Rover 45 1.6
Have had my conversion done on my rover 45 1.6 litre engine last October 2012 and running great average MPG is 32 mpg on gas. I have not filled my petrol tank since last Sept 2012. Great job done and will be looking to have a subaru 2.5 litre engine converted shortly. Top class job and I am a regular user of your gas station in Naas .

We are pleased to be able to recommend VV-Tech LPG Ltd as Auto-Gas installers. They converted our car (2004 Honda CR-V automatic, with about 130,000 Km on the clock) last October, and there have been absolutely no issues during the 10,000 Km that the vehicle has completed since then.
The actual conversion was completed within the 36 hours that was promised; the tank fitting neatly in the spare wheel well; the filler mounted right beside the petrol filler cap; all the rest was installed and connected under the bonnet in a neat and professional manner. The top-end oil reservoir was fitted between the battery and the side of the engine compartment – it's a bit of a hassle to check the oil-level, but as that only has to be done every five or six weeks, it's not really a problem.
No loss of power has been noticed since the conversion – the car was returning just over 10 Km per litre of petrol – on gas, it's about 8 Km per litre – and, from cold, the car switches from petrol to gas within a Kilometre - the best fuel consumption figures are always for longer journeys, of course. Auto-gas costs about two-thirds the price of petrol, so we feel that we're ahead, although the cost of the conversion hasn't been factored in (We think 25,000 Km will pay for the conversion – that's about one year's motoring for us).The gas-filler is a different type in N. Ireland (and probably in the UK, also), but the extra part costs around €20 only, and is not needed unless crossing borders. There seems to be more Auto-Gas points in the North, compared to the Republic, so a bit of planning might be needed when making long journeys, but running out of gas is never a serious problem – the car will still run on petrol, and there are no “bleeding” issues with gas, not like with diesel.
We can't think that there is much of a down-side – sure, the tank intrudes a little into the boot space, but we have never been able to fill the boot anyway. We think that a larger car is more suitable for conversion, purely for the room that is available for the tank, but it might be worth converting a small car.
All in all, we're glad that the car was converted, and the Company that did the job knew what they were doing from the start – we would go back to them again, if there is a next time.

Had my conversion done about eight months ago now and have not had a days bother since the day I collected it. I work in the car trade myself and know a lot of mechanics. Many of them were keen to see the completed job and all commented on what a tidy job it was. They also took it for a test drive and were amazed at how little difference there was between driving on Gas and on Petrol. I use mine for quite a bit of town driving and a lot of long distance runs and it has already saved me a small fortune on fuel. This is without doubt the best money I have ever spent on any car, and should something ever happen to my current 5 series I will be having the conversion done on my next car. The only regret is that I didn't do it sooner. The guys at VV-Tech were fantastic to deal with and Seb even did a few extra jobs on the car before hand to make sure it was in tip top shape and I was going to get the most out of the conversion. On return, my car was running better than it ever did.

Just a short note to thank you for the excellent and professional job that was carried out on my 2.0L Subaru Forester.
I am delighted with the professional manner the conversion was undertaken with no aesthetic loss to the car whatsoever.
Everybody I’ve shown the conversion too, have been extremely impressed with the neatness and unobtrusive nature of the conversion.
In terms of economy, I calculated that the conversion would take 9 months to achieve payback. With unexpected higher than usual mileage, I achieved payback within 6 months.
I’m thoroughly delighted with my gas conversion, it’s a no brainer!

I am very glad that I had my car converted to lpg as this is saving me in the region of €45pw. While the work was being done on the car I was given a complementary car.
Why pay €1.60 a liter for petrol when you can get LPG from .80c per liter. If there is a lpg gas station any where near you or on your way to work be clever and contact W-Tech LPG and get the job done. Who doesn't want to save Money?
John, Hyundai Sonata 2.7
I am very happy with the lpg conversion in my taxi. It's a 2.7 Hyundai 6 cylinder. It was costing me 105 Euro to fill the car with petrol, it now costs me 62 Euro to fill with lpg. I recovered the cost with 30 fills of lpg (1200 Euro). There is no noticeable difference in performance in running on lpg.
Romek, Audi A6 2.0
In my opinion it's a no brainer. I'm very happy with my conversion and would recommend it to anyone. Actually already recommended this option to all my friends.
Tom, Jaguar XJ8 3.2
Conversion was very good. Car runs as good on LPG as on petrol.
Jim, Lexus GS300
Great price, easy on gas good job.
Filip, Mondeo 1.8
I have got the conversion done about 3 months ago and definitely no regrets at all. Smooth run, wouldn't even notice it runs on gas. And the best part is it SAVE me €20 on petrol every week. Would really recommendit to anyone who does lotz commuting.
Thomas, BMW 316
LPG kept my car on the road. I had my e36 BMW 316i SE Automatic 1.6l converted in Kilcullen last October and I am very satisfied since then. I have reduced my fuel costs alot and without the conversion I would have had to switch to a small Diesel car which would have been a great shame as I love this car!
My car was converted in two days in Kilcullen and the guys there did a top-class job, I am very happy with the conversion and get 28.4mpg on LPG compared to 31.5 on Petrol which is around 10% less which seems to be the standard for new LPG conversions. I have 4,500miles driven on LPG now and saved considerably.
My LPG tank was fitted in the boot and is a donut style which goes in the Spare-Wheel well and takes up no space in the boot, it holds 50litres and gives me a range of around 300 miles which is good and I always fill up with LPG when I am near a place selling it as it is still scarce enough in some counties.
Overall I am very happy I converted the car and have no regrets, it is a great technology and I am very impressed with the work done by VV-Tech. I would definitely recommend it to anyone who has a car heavy on Petrol or doing big mileage and is living or commuting near a place which sells AutoGas. A conversion is far cheaper than a Diesel car and once the conversion pays for itself is far cheaper in running costs too.
Tom, Grand Vitara 1.6
The Vitara was converted by VV-Tech in August 2012. This jeep has permanent four wheel drive and when run on petrol returned in the region of 31 MPG and now on LPG about 25 MPG. At current prices for every €100 I used to spend on petrol I now spend about €63 on gas!
The gas system is completely automatic. When cold the engine starts on petrol and then switches to gas after about half a kilometre. The switch from gas to petrol is seamless.
I found the guys at VV-Tech to be very professional and their after sales support to be excellent.
In the future if the Grand Vitara gets replaced with another petrol vehicle, would I consider getting it converted to LPG?
The answer is yes.
Would I go back to VV-Tech to get the conversion done?
The answer is yes too.
