I decided not to go through the whole importing process myself and got myself a Delica which had been imported in October 2017 - so relatively fresh....only about 100 miles away from me. Very similar model to the one in the Gypsy is importing and got it for same price. Already sealed on underside and fully serviced. Going through the fun of swapping out the Japanese Eclipse stereo - had to be done! Fitting tow bar (which I got from the guy for £20).... and various other little jobs. Been quoted 2K for LPG conversion, so need to think about that. All good so far!

As LPG provides around 15% less energy than petrol, the effective difference per litre is about 50p. So 4,000 litres at 50p is the cost of the LPG conversion. After that, you are saving money. If your V6 does 5miles/litre, you'll be doing well. So you'll be into profit after 20,000 miles,or less.

Yeah 20K Miles is what I reckoned. The nearest LPG garage (who would also do the conversion) is at 70p per litre though, so probably take even longer!

Latest on my Delica, it's in the UK and through the MOT. I just need to get it registered with the DVLA and i'm Deli Grin time. I was a bit dissapointed with Algys Autos as 7500 on the road UK does not mean 7500 on the road UK. I have had quite a few extra bills that should have been covered. I'm up to just over 8 grand at the moment.

That's not so good - they should be clear about the on-the-road price. Let's hope it stays at 8K!

Firstly and most importantly is check the cambelt has been changed! The 3.0V6 is a Interference engine and if the belt fails it can cause catastrophic damage! If the timing belt snaps, they run into each other, causing bent valves (most common), cylinder head or camshaft damage, and possibly piston and cylinder wall damage. While it is possible that no damage could occur from a snapped belt on an interference engine Sad
