    ....well what can I report?Ummm....nothing has gone wrong,it has never missed a beat...averaged 36 MPG...ummm passed its MOT ...doesn't use any oil....ummm still as smooth as silk to drive...nothing has needed fixing...ummm...
    Lord knows why anyone would buy a derv version of this car? Each to their own but still!
    ...only problem is what on earth would one replace it with?

    Hello @moi add your car to the club garage so we can all see your ride.

    They are un-replaceable.

    did a 800 mile round trip to France in my 2.4 tourer. There is NO other car I would rather have been in... and I have driven some top end motors from the Eurobox range.. just not as nice or involving or relaxing to drive as the 2.4 tourer!

    Enjoy

    Out of curiosity.. how many of those were on LPG? would be interesting to know and might help cure reservations about lack of longevity and reliability that people associate with a dual fuel car.

    All of them !! The car was converted on 42K, I bought it on 62K and I'm heading towards 162K, so coming upto 120K of LPG'd miles, never missed a beat.

    That's all down to misunderstanding and misconstrued myths.

    Wow! see I thought I read it as 100K of your own miles but then removed the statement thinking maybe you meant 100k total. 162K is a lot of miles even for a petrol car. As they say petrol Hondas are like cockroaches

    Indeed...having owned 2 derv Tourers which are nice enough, they are noisy,not particularly economical and have a litany of well documented problems...trouble is the wanker politicians duped us all into buying diesels so there are very few petrol Tourers around now which is a real shame...

    Couldn't agree more! Never made the change and not likely to in the future.. nothing against the owners and the cars themselves, just the way we were all conned.... Dam politicians. Can you even buy a brand new Petrol accord now?
