MG Rover Group, EcoGas Systems Limited and Landi Renzo S.R.L. have jointly developed an optional aftermarket Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) conversion initially for new and used 1.8-litre Rover and MG cars.

Utilising the more widely available 1.8-litre K Series engine built by Powertrain Limited at Longbridge, the converted Rover and MG cars can switch between petrol and LPG at the touch of a button.

It is planned that the remaining petrol versions of MG and Rover cars will be progressively offered with approved LPG conversions in due course and dealerships can take orders for autumn deliveries.

All MG Rover dealerships will be given the opportunity to become approved LPG installers through the partnership with EcoGas.

MG and Rover cars fitted with the approved LPG conversion will retain their three-year product warranty.

The retail price of a LPG equipped Rover or MG car, including installation, is an additional £2,195.

The Powershift rebate will cover at least 50% of the cost of conversion but this may rise to a 70% rebate if the emissions results are fully certified.

Confirmation of MG Rover Group’s classification will be made available on the Powershift Register in the coming weeks – accessible through the website

LPG has grown in popularity in recent years with significant customer cost savings.  The current average cost of LPG at UK retail filling stations is 36 pence per litre (compared to the typical cost of unleaded petrol at 75 pence per litre).

Currently there are over 1100 filling stations in the UK.  To keep abreast of this demand the network of fuelling stations that supply LPG is growing at a rate of one per day and this trend looks set to continue.
