Greetings from a Portugal-based Volvo S60 on LPG

Hello everyone,

I feel like I've been let through the Pearly Gates. Just browsing this site has shown me how I'm not the only person that would strip out a V8 from a sports-car and replace it with a clean diesel.

I drive a 2000 (a 2001 model in the US) Volvo S60 T5, that I converted to run on LPG six years ago. I chose it because of its relatively torquey engine, which allows motorway (freeway in the US?) driving without having to shift down every time there's a hill. It also has nearly no protruding parts (no antennae or door handles).

Despite this, fuel consumption isn't great but at least the fuel is "greener" and cheaper than regular gasoline. I hope to get leaner and greener consumption here with everyone.

Thanks for having me.
