That's true, I really didn't think that one through. It'll be far too much of a distraction for him...

I used to love that when I had an LPG car Steve.. The down side with mine was it had a little toroidal tank and the range was not great.

Yours has a big boot tank as I recall and that's much better. What sort of range are you seeing?
Jim,

To be honest, I've not really worked it out but I can do Preston to Paul's and back which is roughly 400 miles on a tank of gas, what I need to do is fill it up and then run it until it switches back to petrol.

Done another couple of jobs today, The front number plate is now straight, I've changed the front fog light bulbs and I've had a look at the driver seat switch, which had come apart. I've managed to get it back together and it works..... of a fashion.... looking at the replacement switch I got from fleabay, it appears to be the same, however, the actual button tops are different so I'll have to take the seat out and have a proper look.

SWMBO had 'jobs' for me to do today, which is a shame as the weather has been glorious today 8-)

That's the problem with SWMBOs and they always choose to have jobs when the weather is good for playing cars. I bet today when it's going to be lousy weather she'll declare you can play cars as much as you like...
