You have to put a lot of fuel through a car to pay for lpg/engine change. Never mind the hassle.

Or an omega V6) is around £1200 pa....

I have seen one with a donut in place of the spare wheel? The GTC is easier as there’s an area under the rear deck (behind the rear seats) tha...

Seat Diaghragms

Bought mine some time in 2016 but I can’t find the receipt to show where I got them from :oops:

Even with the right tools, you can still only get a flat or two at a time, so it takes ages.
