    Been fairly busy in the (home) garage recently.

    Knocked out LPG installs on a Megane Scenic 1.6, Civic 1.8 (R18 engine). Swapped out an engine a Focus 1.6, and last weekend converted a Jeep Cherokee 4.7litre V8.

    Cherokee LPG install :-

    I've got some "work in progress" pics of the Civic but nothing showing completed install. I'll take some next time I see it.

    Plenty of space for a tank in the boot

    Yeah it's a real gas guzzler LOL

    Not sure what it does with all those cubic inches though, as it only 240 BHP, my Civic Type-R could match that with a few mods LOL.
