LPG and Value Seat Recession

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys, New to the forum.


Hope you are all well.


I bought a 2006 Toyota Alphard 3.0 V6 MZG edition a last month and its a great car.


It was only ment to be for weekend use but now i have started using it everyday as i enjoy driving soo much.


Obviously now using it as a daily means the fuel gauge goes down very quickly. I get around 120-140 miles for £40. So i decided to look into an lpg conversation.

I read some chats on the forum and was very pleased to hear how much the economy goes up by using LPG do i started looking around for a UKLPG installer. Called up a couple of places all was fine etc.


Then one company i spoke to yesterday said  to me that the Alphard V6 engine is known for 'Value Seat Recession' when used on LPG and flash lube system would need to be fitted but this is will not completely cure it and they would advise i don't do a LPG Conversion.

This has confused me as no other company mentioned this and I haven't read anything on the forum and this issue so just really wanted to clarify the facts.


The company still quoted me just under £3000 for the LPG install and Flash Lube install.


If someone can please clarify this it would be greatly helpful.


Many thanks in advance.
