Default V50 t5

I'm thinking of replacing my V50 2ltr Diesel with a V50 T5. To keep it as an affordable vehicle I'm thinking of converting it to LPG. Does the doughnut tank fit in the sparewheel carrier on a V50 and will it need a lubricator for the valves? My S60 has a BRC system and it didn't need a lubricator so I'm hoping that the same goes for the V50 T5.

Cheers

Using my previous 2ltr Auto S60 as a guide, 28-30 on a run I would have thought. I'm not completely up to speed on what a T5 usually gets normally. Local I would imagine circa 23mpg which on gas would give you close to diesel cost with added Grin factor
