CASE STUDY: LPG SWITCH
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.
