Not filled up my petrol one since the beginning of April but with the help of a calculator it should be about 50-60.
Sounds about right - I usually fill the Clio up at weekends and it cost me 27 for around half a tank (I put 23l in, give or take, on Saturday). That said, I normally use 'premium' unleaded as I get far better economy but when the prices at my 'usual' petrol station went up 5p/l over the course of 2 days, I came to the conclusion that it's not just the government who are taking the .

If an LPG conversion was viable for me, I'd do it - however, spending 2k on a car I bought for 1600 doesn't make sense. Even Prudence Broon could see *that*.
