Default lpg spain

hello everyone, after a few years off of the forum.
i have an s8 d2 model.
i am thinking of setting up a limo service in spain, a sort of private company.
gas is incredibly expensive here, so i am thinking of going for a lpg system.
it will cost me 1/3 of the price i paid for the car in 2006.
what do you recommend?
apart from that, i need to paint the beast black again (because of scratches and resin off of the trees) and get some 20Žalloys and tyres on it.
any suggestions for the original ronin look?
regards, have a great week
denkas8

well , lpg in spain is finally a practical proposition

problem is on the A8/S8 you need not only the correct conversion but a converter who knows the intricacies of converting a multi cylinder aluminium car

this company are known for A8 conversions in uk and use the Romano system as you can read ; the Prins conversion also has a good reputation

this is an excellent forum for advice on lpg ;rossko is particularly knowledgable

incidentally denka , you haven't entered your location on your profile but it sounds as though you are near the border with portugal

if that is the case consider investigating lpg installations there , they used to be quite a lot cheaper due to lower labour costs
and if you are serious about some limo work don't fit 20 inch wheels , for that work comfort is important and 18 inch give a superior ride
