Hi all,
I'm thinking of maybe replaced my hyundai coupe and getting a 2nd jaguar, it would be 2007/8 petrol model which I would fit lpg to.

Is there anyone with a lpg powered XF on here?

Cheers.

Hi Simon,

Your s type is the only Jaguar I have seen with an lpg conversion --  but you never know. The could be others around.

Though not illegal to do a DIY conversion problems arise if you ever need to make an insurance claim for a LPG converted vehicle that is not a certified installation. Most insurance companies require the registration number to be on the UKLPG vehicle register.

Every install of lpg (but not my present S) I have done has been followed by a trip to a lpg specialist to check it over and put it on the register.

But I'm feeling this is a waste of time as every insurance company (and I change companies every year) over the last 6 years have not asked or checked it's on the register and you only get £10 off read tax per year.

Ah yes there quick to take your money!..But try claiming and if they find the slightest reason not to pay? (lowered springs ect) Insurance companies are crooks

Personally, I've not found that to be the case Paul, although there is a great deal of anecdotal evidence, although not empirical evidence to back you up I'll agree.

I once had a highly modified Rover 620Ti which had a heck of a lot more than just lower springs :wacko: which was written off and my insurer paid up more than I thought it was worth without the slightest argument. Since then, I've seen two other cars written off and both times the insurer and I came to an amicable agreement.

I'm making the assumption here that you inform your insurers of any modifications you make?

Insurance companies, like any other, are out to make a profit but crooks? From my experience I'd find that a bit harsh :yes:

:whistling1: Best ask Dan at Adrian Flux for a definitive answer? As there experts on what counts as modifications?

Maybe there be a bit lenient if only bent metal and just a body shop engineer is involved in issuing a condition report ..Just wait until 3rd party person injury claims for £1000s are involved, Insurance companies will check for modifications to vehicles with a flea comb! And I not joke! Even a towbar fitted if the driver involved does not hold a licence that includes they can legally tow.

As for crooks? There's making a profit and there's making profit! 1st year there fight for your business! Asking whats the cheapest price quoted then under cutting that but keeping your payment details on record..2nd year your find for no reason £s added and just hoping you lazy and not check the last years cost (That's the reason your not find the amount paid on the certificate) so they can auto renew insurance using your kept details. If queried the answer will be: For your benefit

Hi,

Not too sure exactly what you are looking for an answer to.

Regards,

Dan.

By not declaring none std vehicle modifications to get cheap insurance then expecting to be paid for any accident damage. Either that? or I wasted my time and money insuring my Subaru with Adrian Flux and should have chanced just insuring it  with any old company as a std vehicle and saved money.

I always declare my car has lpg and it's insuranced to not cover the conversion, so if it did get written off I would remove the lpg for my next vehicle away. 

I don't think my insurance costs any more because of this.

Hi,

Anything you do to your vehicle should be declared to your insurer, and most UK insurers will require a certificate of installation for LPG conversions. However, we look at this on a case-by-case basis.
