Hi Steve,

There are indeed problems associated with the LPG systems on the xtrail and you can read all about it in THIS thread.

Re:


If you read the LPG thread you will notice issues experienced by those running with LPG converted xtrails as the engine wear becomes much faster and this could cause excessive oil usage.

I'm not sure how good your xtrail is as you didn't mention how old is it and what is the mileage on it? Has it been regularly serviced...etc

Not sure how your mechanic came to this conclusion, as we have T30 models here with us on the forum which have been driven since 2001 with over 500,000kms on the clock with very little issues.

LPG & Oil Consumption


LPG burns at approx. 1200 deg, petrol at about 850deg.

Consequently, rings tend to wear out quicker on LPG converted engines and blow by occurs.

If an LPG vehicle uses 1lt oil per 1000km, then that's a VERY BAD sign and the engine is borrowed time.

posticon Re: LPG & Oil Consumption


Thicker oil might give you some more driving time/Km and less smoke.

As long as you keep the oil up to it so the bearings don't fail, there's probably plenty of life in the old girl yet. emoticon

After all, VW declare that 1 L of oil per 1000 Km is normal in their NEW cars.

Personally, with those figures, in order to extend the remaining life of that motor, I'd stop using LPG (or E10).
