i've just finished using a 2007 mk 7 lpg as a front line vehicle.(2261cc) now on 126,000miles.
it's done 30,000m in 12 months.mainly on LPG with the price varying between 49.9(energas) and 64.9p(motorway services) per litre.
consumption was pretty poor approx 19mpg on petrol and about 260miles on a tank of 75 litres of lpg.(approx 15mpg?) but loaded to max weight and lot's of ticking over.(sometimes for hrs).

I've got a tidy 2003 swb factory fitted LPG, 93,000 on the clock.
I haven't used the lpg as it hasn't worked for the last couple of years, took it into Ford and it needs a new LPG distributor and at around a grand I'll keep on with good old petrol.

Not sure if anyone got back to you, but likely to be factory Necam Koltec system. Cant say what your issue is, but contact Edward at mobile LPG servicing - http://www.mobileautomotivesandlpg.co.uk/

That's not correct: the vehicle will start on unleaded and once the coolant warms up, it will switch over to LPG.

Hello there, Richard here. Just bought a 52 plate SWB 280 Bi-fuel.......LPG seems to work so far though sometimes trips out or doesnt flick over properly. but its early days only had it a week. Has just over 100k on the clock too.
Turning it into a day van to use when going camping and the such.

i have a 2005 280 LPG just hit 80,000 had it a year - ex government. everything working fine (touch wood), could do with an insight into changing LPG filters though - ie where are they and how easy are they to change - thinking prevention better than cure here....
