    Hello. I just recently bought a range rover p38 V8 petrol and I'm thinking about changing to Lpg to reduce the costs. Should I do it or not? How much it cost? Thanks

    In my opinion the tank is too small in the P38 for the V8 and LPG is the way to go. Typically you are better off buying one with LPG already fitted, even if it’s broke.
    Don’t worry about that now, you have the chance to get a new reliable system.
    Welcome

    Hi there and welcome!
    If you're putting a new system into a car, it's going to take a while before it pays off. Make sure the engine runs well on petrol and the cooling system is spot on before entertaining LPG

    Absolutely! I have a 2000 P38 4.6 THOR V8with a BRC LPG system. I buy LPG at Morrisons at 55.7p/litre. Their unleaded is currently 126.9/litre.I also have a 2000 AUDI A8 4.2 V8 with a Prins LPG system. It's a total no-brainer for me, but then again I AM from Lancashire. Go for it my friend...I am certain you will NOT have an iota of regret!
    Happy LPG-ING!

    If your aim is to "save money" i'd sell the car ;)

    LPG is good though..

    A conversion is AROUND £2000

    ^^^ this is important factor for RR, they were designed as expensive high maintenance vehicles.

    Definitely a no-brained...GO FOR IT! You'll have a GREAT cost:benefit, clawing back your outlay with better than half-price fuel. My tame & knowledgeable motor engineer fitted a "hotter" set of spark plugs as my 4.6 Thor lump soon kicks over from unleaded to LPG within a mile, so 95%+ of my motoring.
