Around 72 litres iirc.

The 93litre (actual capacity) LPG tank I fit on Elgrands holds 85 litres (net, allowing room for expansion) of LPG... More range on LPG than range on petrol, over double the range of a standard Elgrand. But with an LPG conversion the usual idea is to run on LPG as much of the time as possible (avoid running on petrol) because LPG is half price of petrol. Although some owners have also valued the additional range highly.

Stupid question but where do you fit the LPG tank?

Reading through some of this thread - I would like to fit a throttle controller to my 2007 HWS - its the 2.5 engine. Can anyone advise if the listed types on well known auction site, as "plug&play" work with this engine ? - or are they really only suited to the 3.5 engine ?
My bus is running well , no issues but just want some more buttons to play with....!

LPG tank goes on the underside in place of spare wheel
Very stupid question but does the spare wheel then go somewhere else or do you just do without one. My last car didn't have a spare wheel just needed a recovery van when they blew!!
