    Default Interesting C5HDi

    Bought an interesting C5 HDi today, a 2003 Anniversary model with leather trim, alloys and sunroof... Only 113,000 km with impeccable service history. After I had driven and then bought it, I was looking it over and opened the boot to find an LPG Cylinder there.... Seems its a dual fuel job, runs on either diesel or LPG... Reckon I got more than I bargained on and more value than I paid the dealer for.

    Does it seem gruntier than a standard deisel Pretty certain the idea is it runs both. Here's where i've seen it before:

    Thanks for the link Shane, that is very interesting, it runs diesel/LPG simultaneously. I wasn't aware of that, I just assumed it was like most other dual fuel vehicles I have seen, where you can choose one or the other.

    We service a Ford Focus (2.0L PSA diesel) with a LPG conversion, it is an absolute rocket!
