Default Volvo S60 2.0T on LPG

As a new 1st time Volvo owner in my 3rd week of ownership i can say overall that so far I am very inmpressed with the car and the LPg system fitted to it. It already had the LPG fitted when I bought it, and it being 13 yrs old with only 76000 miles on it it runs like a dream, and I also noticed that the LPG sytem has the Flash Lube valve saver kit fitted to it, something I have never seen before, as in the past I had an old P38 range rover 4.6 on LPG but just a single point injection system on it, and not a patch on the system fitted to the Volvo. So all in all very happy so far.

Hi All,
A few years ago I had a 940 on gas Did over 400000 miles and with regular service had no major problems - in 8 years saved over 32000 in fuel costs against the cost of petrol
that's my kinda car.

Now drive a V70 D5 Diesel and surprisingly that's even more economical than gas

Default CNG ovlovs

I've asked thsi before. With the CNG variant of these cars outselling LPG cars, and with ovlov pioneering CNG for a major manufacturer, and no least to get this forum found by owners of these cars, might this also be monikered the Bifuel LPG CNG section?

Let's face it, whilst no longer made, ovlov did make them, and surely it's a part of history for Volvo, a Volvo first and not to be ignored. Agreed?

Should be OK now. We moderated a few sections of the forum due to spambots. I've turned that off in here now.
