Laguna II V6 to DCI


I currently have a Laguna II initiale 3L V6 hatch, 51 plate, 43k miles. I am in the process of swapping to a laguna II initiale 1.9DCI estate, 52 plate, 90K miles. Main reason being I am traveling bit more at work and could do with the fuel economy. My only concern now is i've seen a lot of issues with turbo failure on the desiel. The new car does have FRSH and was fleet car so mostly motorway milage. If you have any suggestions, recomendations or comments they would be greatly received. Thanks in advance

If you're buying from a dealer, see if they'll flog you the Harmony warranty. It's not cheap, but worth it for the peace of mind, especially since your car will already be exempt from the Yellow OTS on the grounds of mileage. Even if you're buying privately, look at the dealer or possibly another warranty.

It may just be cost effective to go for an LPG conversion on the V6. This should more or less halve your current fuel costs and would probably cost you somewhere in the region of 1000-1500 to do right. Running cost wise, this might just put the car on par with (or possibly even better than) the diesel.

I'd imagine the L2 will be a 'donut tank' coversion. This means you don't get a hell of a lot of storage space for LPG, so range won't be that hot on gas. But LPG's a lot easier to come by than it used to be, especially on the motorway.

The donut tank also means that you no longer have room for a spare wheel (carry a can of tyre weld and hope for the best, or have your tyres pre-treated with something like Ultraseal.)
