grnthng Hi, well...I googled LPG and RR and came up with one website that I posted above 4 u to click on, I found that out of 4 or 5 dealing with the Land Rover V8's that this had the most information and offered a kit for every Land Rover...from the Series to the most recent Range Rover!
Check it out!
You will have to source the under hood kit from UK/Europe because I could not find anybody in the states....then the bulkier tank you can buy anywhere in the US!
Not to say that you could not rig a LPG system into a land rover here...its just that they (UK) have been doing it longer and have custom taylored a kit for the Land Rover's, besides it not the much on shipping... the tank is, but you can buy that here in states!

BTW, there is an unbelievably mint and expensive P38 (2001) on Ebay right now out of Atlanta with only 45,000 miles!

Hargate I am new here! Also new to RR. I sought out this site as a source for some information on the topic of this thread.

I have a 96 P38 HSE in mind that I want to buy. It has been well maintained from everything I have read as far as a buying guide goes. I am taking a local indy mech. with me tomorrow to give it the thorough check before I pull the trigger on my first RR.

I have been wanting one for a while and the purpose I have in mind is just to have a 4X for inclimate weather and the occasional camp/trail ride with my son (just now 18 months old). This will not be an everyday driver but I definitely want to do a sequential bi-fuel conversion for LP gas.

I have searched around to find install techs, kit info, filling stations, and even looked into a home fuel station but I cannot find any single source for this path that is here in the States.

This site seems chock full of knowledgeable LR/RR enthusiasts so hopefully there will be a thread (yes I have searched) someone can point me to or a link someone can provide.

I may not buy the P38 I have in mind right now but I will get one and I do want to run LP.

Thanks in advance guys, and remember, I'm a noob.

grnthng I am very interested in this also....I don't know how accurate that earlier post about not being EPA approved is, I think some things have changed!
I am still trying to also find out some more as far as my state is concerned on these conversions!
Here is a good source I think...looks like they have good support and knowledge on the Land Rover V8's!

Its a shame, we are behind Europe on this....they have been doing this for a few years already! BTW, 95% of the world's supply of LPG comes from the US!

I'm convinced on the kit....I need to find out about the rest as far as legalities!

LPG in Mass.

Hello, I have been wondering for some time about switching to LP. A few years ago it seemed a bit steep, but am hoping that maybe costs have come down. I have 2 Disco IIs so maybe it might be a little cheaper and easier to do 2. I can learn from the mistakes on the first one. Hope someone might have info about LP in the Boston area.
Thanks,

Thank you,

I brought my 87 RHD vogue with me from the UK its duel fuel gas propane (97 4.0 4 bolt with serpentine drive). 5th year of running in Ontario starts in minus 35c no issues - as i use my rangie for logging etc

Runs better on propane than gas and i have a supplier for the kits two types simple changeover kit - shuts off gas pump and switches in LPG when warm or latest Italian style with fuel rail 8 propane injectors and own mappable ECU that sources signals from O/E

Email me for details.

Cheers

Rovin4life you could stick it on the side in the back and run the lines thru the floor and seal them up with a grommet.


oh and chipping a ford diesel can have disastrous results. heard alot of stories from the diesel guys I hang around with.

TsiArt Well I finaly got some info . And I'm still working on details.

LPG tank so far is a PITA . Casue it needs to be US DOT apruved all that happy hourse shit . The electronics and control valve end is taken care off. It will ruffly cost about $700 , and then the tank or tanks will be additional ~ $300. So now I'm stuck on the tanks.

Anyone has any good ideas where to stick a tank or tanks under that thing ?
Cause 44" x 8" cilinder is really tiny . it dose not hold that much . But I have to do more reasurch . Casue I know that they run tanks that go into the trunk where spare tire was .

And LR needs to use liqwid , casue Compresed is only like 87 octane , when Liqwid is like 97 or 95 octane.

mcvickoffroad Someone posted info on a conversion kit that he sells. I believe he is located in Canada and even offers to install it for you. The post may have been on www.discoweb. Will try to find it again

Moeras Liquid Petroleum Gas - As in the stuff that you use to cook on when camping.

It is normally added to the air Fuel mixture just before it enters the combustion chamber. Helps incresing power or decreasing fuel consumption.

appstatedisco can someone explain what LPG is? I keep seeing it on the forums but have no clue what it is or how it works. Any info would be appreciated.

TsiArt I'm about to get my uncle send me a kit from europe .

Cause I already have 3 people that want it on their cars here in CT .

Only thing is that LNG and CNG are different . LNG is like 97 octane , but CNG is like 85 octane .

This Kit is manufactured here in SA and is exported to Aus & NZ.
It is made by a company called Seagull Engineering. I could not find them on the net though.

I saw a program on our Local TV where this comany sponser a Mercedes 270CDI in our local Stock car races. (As marketing for their product). in Standerd form the Merc puts out something like 120 KW. After the LPG kit was added it puts out 160kw. (The rules state that no mods on the enjin may be done, but that you may run deul feul. Also you may not add any Oxsidants to the enjin - as in compressed air).
