JOHN and Les­ley Braggs planned to be­come grey no­mads and so they bought a 2003BMWX5 V8 petrol. ‘‘You wouldn’t get much change out of $120 when you filled it up,’’ says John, pic­tured.

About eight months ago they con­verted it to a du­al­fuel petrol/LPG sys­tem.

‘‘We only put about $20 a month of petrol into it be­cause it starts up on petrol and then a few sec­onds later the gas kicks in,’’ he says.

‘‘The petrol also kicks in if you run low on LPG.’’

They had a 70-litre LPG tank in­stalled where the spare tyre was lo­cated un­der the cargo floor so they didn’t lose any lug­gage space.
