Default LPG an Amazon

Hello All

When I've been looking for an Amazon, particularly in The Netherlands, many of them already have LPG conversions.

Is this a relatively straightforward car to convert?

My car is a 1800cc with twin SU carbs.

Thank you for any advice, Terry

They are simple to convert. The parts are all fairly basic.
The hardest part is fitting a big enough tank without killing too much load space. Twin tanks can be a better bet if you need range
