We are in Miles in UK. In UK a Gallon is 4.5ltrs
Ok try and make it easier and should of added to post as might of stopped any confusion.
UK petrol costs per Litre is around £1.20 upwards
LPG costs per litre is around £0.60 upwards
So a Gallon of petrol 4.5ltrs, equates to 9 ltrs of Lpg rough same cost.
So if we travel 7/8 miles on a gallon of petrol , On Lpg same cost we can travel 14 miles.
In theory we save cost of a gallon of petrol. ??.
Thank you for the clarification .
Here in the States our petrol and propane costs per gallon are similar .
Propane National average $2.50 - $3.50 gal.
Gasoline National average $2.85 gal. regular.
For this reason on this side of the pond you don't see many propane fueled RV's.
Haven't driven much in England except for London . Have driven extensively through Ireland . Have found your Expressways to be a joy to drive on . However , the secondary roads are a real adventure but worth it for the amazing scenery.
Thanks. Glad we got the technical sorted.
We try to avoid Motorways (Expressways I think). Use the smaller roads as you say better scenery, and we are not in a hurry to get anywhere.
Lived in the Rv for 14 years now and love the life. Rent out our property's which helps our life style. We normally spend 6 months each year ( before the Lurgie spoilt it) in Australia where we have a Rv there so can travel around.
Next few years hoping to get back to USA, buy a Rv and again do 6 month stints exploring.
