Ethanol or CNG/LPG conversion kits 2.3 petrol?
« on: November 18, 2013, 06:48:30 AM »
Hi all,

Has anybody got any experience of ethanol (or RE85 as it's called here in Finland) conversion kits for Galaxy 2.3 petrol engine? Or how about the CNG/LPG versions? Concerning the LPG conversion I got reply from Ford Finland that the conversion is not recommended as the valves and the valve deck are not designed for those and they will break eventually.

But I have seen a lots of those converted (both versions) cars abroad, so they do exist.

Any experience?
