Off the Xmas card list
You can get a drip feed lubricant system from Tinley Tech
with the comparetively low mileage these types of vehicles do wear won't be a problem. i've had similar conversations with classic car owners who want to get hardened valve seats fitted. when unleaded first came to the uk a mate had a 2.8 granada as his daily that he drove like he stole it and after 3 years it burnt a valve. he was doing about 30,000 miles a year so roughly 90,000 miles. how long to do that many miles in a car that's basically your toy? same thing with lpg and wear in my mind.LPG is obviously a 'dry' fuel
Engines wear more, run hotter and generally come rebuild time are in a far worse state than those run on petrol ..... worn bores, valve seat recession etc ...... just one other thing to consider
Having said that, plenty of 'independents', mostly related to taxi operations, sell it (at least locally)
did you eat a dictionary today?I've seen severe valve & seat damage in as little as 20k miles
A quick search suggests I'm not the only one
LPG specific engines are built with different valve / seat materials to handle the 'problem'
Regardless, it's a simple cost / benefit calculation ...... but with very low annual mileages ameliorating the upfront costs just becomes less achievable
no arguement here fella, don't be so sensitive. i just never heard that word before. had to look it up, lol. surely you've been on here long enough now to have thicker skin than that?I can use smaller words if you're struggling understanding them .......
Didn't come here for an argument, just to pass on some honest information, but I guess you always get this, with the resident 'experts' .......
