I am just in the middle of fitting a kit to my [whisper] range rover, sorry SAAB fans! [/whisper] and there doesnt seem to be much to it really! The kit cost me £860, but that is with 4 tanks, and the tanks are the expensive bit! > With the higher Octane, a Saab turbo should be less inclined to pink > too, Hmm. Seems tasty, and so cheap to run on. > A saab Turbo will run particularly well on LPG, as the APC will give you more boost to accomodate the higher octane fuel, so will quite possibly give more power than running on petrol, especially if you fit an ignition processor to remap the timing curve. LPG systems are a little more complicated for a turbo, but by no means impossible. Try posting on uk.rec.cars.fuel.lpg for more info
