    holy crap!!! how many miles/kilometers can you drive with that much fuel?

    Well......running on LPG it is very variable, depending temperature, what kind of driving (i.e. city, highway, etc.), but between 500 kilometers - 650 kilometers.

    On Gasolin, well, the 8,1 consumes a bit, hehe. But, between 2,5 and 3 liters \ 10 kilometers....approximately.
    Haven`t measured it accurately yet.

    But with the 180 liter LPG tank + the 140 literfuel tank, the range is quite long you might say

    LPG.....Liquified Petroleum gas....it is the same as I use in my caravan for cooking food
    Propane gas mostly. I think it is actually a mix of propane and Butane or something. But as said, it is the same gas you use on your stove.
    It is supposed to be a environmentally friendly alternative, but here in Norway the government still live in the utopi of having us all ride around in electric cars.....lol. I don`t see that it is gonna happen in the near future but......
    LPG in Norway is pr. litre half the prize compared to regular gasolin. So it is cheaper.
    My car automatically switch to LPG when the temperature in the engine is correct....and when I am out of LPG....switches back to regular. Works like a charm.
