The problem is far beyond emissions compliance, since some countries still have displacement-based taxation schemes. I'm not sure how it works in Australia, but it doesn't seem to happen there.

Forgive me if I talk as a repeat tourist of Turkey, but they are known to have the worlds most expensive fuel.

To offset this, they have a Renault factory or too, and zoom around having fun. in usually 1.2L cars. If you don't really drive too far, an ML350 is ok.

VW tdi's are very common there as are the Renaults. :-)

I just researched it and it seems quite a pita.

And a new engine would cost about 7k euros, considering the price of lpg, it will probably never pay for itself.

Turkey became a hub for many automakers, not just Renault. Fiat is also quite popular there. But anyway, their 1.2L cars might still fare better efficiency-wise than the 1.0L penalty boxes from Brazil
