Go LPG! are Land Rover enthusiasts!

Although this is a totally different type of conversion to the one you were expecting to see, it does show how long we have been teaching Range Rovers to do different tricks!

This picture was taken in 1981 and shows the first of many Range Rover variants to roll out of the workshop. 6x4 and 6x6 versions in both 5 seat pick up and full roof form were built until the late 80's. Some of the full roof versions were commissioned by Granada TV for outside broadcast work. 'Smiley Miley' of the Radio One Roadshow also bought one.

Since those days Go LPG! was set up and all Range Rover Petrol engine sizes and variants have been converted to run on LPG with great success. The choice of tank position has been widened by the underslung and spare wheel tank options becoming available. Now the new option of replacing the full size Petrol tank with an LPG tank and a smaller (reserve) Petrol tank is available, further increasing the choice.

Fuel injected and catalysed engines are now converted as matter of course. Multi point gas injection is now a wonderful way to convert any Land Rover product to run on the cheaper stuff!

Go LPG convert all petrol Range Rover engine variants including 3.5 and 3.9 injected and carburreted, 4.2 (although the underslung tank option may not be available for the models with air suspension) 4.0 and 4.6.

Here are some pictures of a Range Rover LPG conversion -

Range Rovers must be the most converted car in UK, largely due to their heavy petrol consumption, long life and huge popularity. We have converted every Range Rover mark and variant but don't normally photograph them for the website. Instead of making heavy work of going into every little difference and detail we have included just a few details on this page.

This Classic 3.9 SE softdash automatic is our own.

Here is a late model series 1 Discovery (same engine and ECU as the Range Rover 3.9) converted with BRC Sequent 56 equipment. This is the most expensive 'front end' conversion available although you get what you pay for - Utter relaibility can only come from top end SGi equipment.
A useful switch position is afforded by the bottom of a plastic bezel on the softdash model. It is easily visible to the driver but not annoying or distacting when driving in the dark. Attention to details like this are important to us. It's your car and you must be happy with the siting of components. We like to discuss all the options with the customer.
For this particular conversion is was important to keep the load space unaffected, so we began by removing the original petrol tank and fitting this 33 litre reserve petrol tank to free up some space. It is not a cheap option by any means, but if load space is paramount it does make room for an underslung LPG tank.

As we pointed out earlier, none of the models fitted with air suspension allow the commonly described 'Sill' or 'Torpedo' tanks to be underslung as the space is taken up by the suspension pump units.

Removing the original petrol tank allows us to mount either 2 x 40 litre cylinder tanks or 1x 57 litre spare wheel tank in the space freed up. For this conversion we chose the single 66 litre spare wheel tank option, mainly to avoid the expense of 2 cylinder tanks, 2 multivalves and the 'skid' mounting plate. We also like to keep pipe joints and junctions down to a minimum, two junctions were avoided here.
One 57 litre tank wasn't enough for the fuel capacity required on our car so a second 57 litre spare wheel tank, a vertical toroidal this time, was mounted in place of the spare wheel. After allowing for the 20% expansion space required for all automotive LPG tanks this Range Rover now has 91 litres of LPG capacity with no effect on the load space (save for the displaced spare wheel which some may wish to carry in the load space).

Both tanks fill and supply fuel at the same time. 33 litres of Petrol is available at the flick of a switch should the LPG tanks run dry, providing a useful reserve fuel supply.

Here is another tank choice, one of two underslung 36 litre cylinder tanks fitted to an earlier 3.9 model.

We take a lot of care in mounting these tanks, using the strongest and most expensive mountings available. Many installations we've seen use cheap perforated mild steel straps which are not strong enough and rust through quickly.

Our tank mountings are bolted to the chassis (the floor is not a good mounting point and welding promotes future rust problems) and are so strong you could jack the car up by placing a jack under the tank.........

NOTE that this option is not available for cars with air suspension.

This is the cheapest tank choice, 90 litre cylinder tank fitted in the load space of an an earlier 3.9 model.

It does affect the load space but lots of owners don't mind that so much. The rear seat will stil fold down and long loads can be placed over the tank.

And finally, the LPG filler. This is the 'fixed bayonet' type of filler required by LPGA, the only type that is certifiable under their installation regulations. The position on the towbar blade is ideal, safe from rear impact and easy to reach.
Earlier Range Rover models with the larger centre mounted fuel flap may have the filler mounted under the flap which is really handy.

Note that it is not possible to do this with the later high mounted filler.

Fuel Economy Trial - Range Rover 3.9i with OMVL Closed Loop single mixer system

The LPG tanks where filled right up, the trip meter zeroed.

262 mainly motorway miles were covered before the tanks were again filled, taking 77.1 litres of LPG.

This equates to (77.1 / 4.55) 16.94 imperial gallons. 262 miles / 16.94 Gals = 15.46 MPG LPG.

Petrol is normally around 2.4 times the price of LPG (15.46 x 2.4) giving an equivalent figure of 37.1 MPG.

Remember that this car is a late model series one with a cat. and an oxygen sensor. It is in excellent condition both mechanically and ignition wise. Its Oxygen (Lambda) sensor (a consumable item ) is in first class condition. We should be able to get you similar results as long as the condition of your Range Rover is as good.

NB! Earlier models without a cat. and oxygen sensor may not produce such good fuel economy results as the OMVL Millenium feedback control system cannot be fitted. It is possible to fit an oxygen (Lambda) sensor to your car and use that to run a closed loop system. This can be done by special arrangement.
