    Hi again.

    Does anyone have a factory-fitted dual-fuel LPG V40?

    If so, can you tell me whatg the boot area looks like?
    Even send me a photo of it?

    I've had LPG fitted to mine, but have a dilema regarding what tank to fit.
    As the spare wheel wellis very small, I can only fit a tiny doughnut tank in
    there without fouling the wheel well cover.

    Someone told me the dual-fuel V40's boot area was identical to a standard
    one, so I could buy & fit the raised boot floor cover fitted to dual-fuel
    This would allow me to fit a far larger doughnut tank beneath it, like a
    factory-fit dual-fuel V40.

    But the exploded diagram my Volvo dealer gave me makes out that the boot
    area is slightly different to a standard V40's, making me doubt if the
    raised boot floor cover would easily fit into my V40's boot area.

    If anyone can tell me about it, or send a photos, or even allow me to come
    and view their V40, I would be greatly appreciative!

    Thank you.

  2. dont forget to put stronger springs in the rear to cope with the extra
    load and expect 10%lower fuel economy roughly .Put colder plugs in close
    the gap up a bit .Use quality oil and change it on time. Gas interreats
    with oil and makes it a bit acid .25 years of using lpg doing my own
    work says I know what I am talking about .
